No not the fruit juice kind. I’m talking creative juices. For some reason, they ebb and flow from time to time. There are times when it just feels right in some of the creative endeavors I tinker in. I’m hoping to rediscover this because I’ve been a little stagnant lately. So time to look within and revive myself.

I have to stop waiting for opportunities and make my own. I just have to make the effort. I have to work within what I’m given when I’m given the time.

I’m going to set my priorities and get to work. I’m excited just thinking about it now and feel committed to accomplishments this weekend. I’ll report back my success or failure Sunday.

Tonight is the last evening of work for the job that pays the bills and my job as husband, grandpa and hobby master will resume. Isn’t life grand.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • The Miracle in Minnesota. Go Terps.
  • When you do something for someone and appreciation is expressed, joy is felt.
  • I was thinking about washing my car tomorrow. I see mother nature is prepared to give it a blow-dry without starting it up.
  • I feel as a father that YouTube takes away a lot of the fun of showing something to your children because they know how to do it better than you by watching videos.

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.
