Super Saturday

1 Comment

There are some family days that really work out nicely. Today was one of those. A celebration and 4 generations of the family represented. So many smiles and laughs shared. Affection and appreciation were given and felt. Pride and love overflowing in me tonight.

I still see some taking it for granted. Not savoring the moment. Not utilizing the time and presence of others. Sometimes it’s difficult in larger gatherings. For instance, I wish I had talked more with several people today, but I was also doing some shooting.

Anyway, I’m spent. Rumor is in a few hours we’re going to lose an hour of sleep. Ain’t that some stuff.

That project I was speaking about the last week or so was a photo album of my granddaughters first year of life. It was fun putting together. It gave me and the printer a workout. Almost 300 images. It was a pure joy doing it though and I hope to help document every year of every grandchild I ever have.

To be close and able to help my children and their children, I’m one lucky man.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I’m so tired it’s hard to recall some random thoughts I’ve had today.
  • Ah, here is one. Young children get surprisingly fast, surprisingly fast.
  • Down to a few hours before the workweek starts again. It’s getting a bit easier knowing they aren’t unlimited anymore.
  • I’ve gotten away from exercising again. I should go for a long walk tomorrow morning. And take that cinderblock of a camera with me for a workout.

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.
