Blank canvas

Each day we start with a blank canvas that is ready to be filled. Each day of life can create wonderful works of art if your up to it. Yes it is very easy to grab a can of black paint and just fill the frame with it. That negative mindset is a one trick pony. Maybe easy to ride and tough to get off of for some but you can make a day of it I guess.

I like to experience a range of emotions. Because no matter how positive and upbeat about my outlook, I know life has some dark colors that you can’t ignore. So I’m prepared with a full palette to work with.

This weekend I’ve been very productive painting what I hope is a great picture. It’s a great feeling to be in a creative mode and have some time to invest in it.

I’m really excited about March for a few reasons. Obviously its March Madness which fills my nights with basketball. It’s the month the weather starts to turn to my liking so I can come out of hibernation.

I’m excited because there are a couple of very important birthdays to celebrate. I’m excited because it might be warm enough to put the top down on the car. I’m excited because the work schedule won’t be as demanding as this past month.

I’m excited because I hope to catch up with some old friends I haven’t seen in a while. I’m excited to take some new images. I’m excited because the grill will be fired up this month.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Once I’m past Monday, the rest of the week is cake.
  • Daily walks start today.
  • The more I do the better I feel.
  • I wonder if the mower battery will take another charge this year. Usually I pull it, store it inside and trickle charge it. I was lazy so its still in the mower this spring.

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.
