I had an ambitious project that started before the new year. It’s a little larger than I thought but I’m also glad of that. Because the more I work on it the better I feel. The more I work, the more I think about what more I can do with it. And the thought of filling it up with even more content as each day passes.

You can encounter a great number of pricks in a day.

It’s part of my daily routine now to add, edit, label, position. Almost 6,000 images so far and lots more to go. Already starting to organize it a little differently. I see weeks if not months of work ahead. Ain’t it great.

I love that I’m finally organizing all my family and friend’s photos. And I’ve got an area for all the old family slides once I get them transferred.

I feel alive. I’m feeling like opportunities are there if I just step up and follow through on some of my ideas.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I’m almost giddy about seeing my grandchild in a few hours. Let me charge the camera batteries.
  • Having a day a week where you can gather with your best friends is so important.
  • Taking some things as they come is part of life. But always have your lines.
  • I try to take every image as it belongs in a nice frame. I’ll settle for 1 per week.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
