Time is short

I thought I was going to get more time in my week when I started working from home a good while back. I was wrong again, not the first or last time. The few hours I may have recouped in commute time savings have been overrun by other issues.

I also realized that by not driving as much my listening to music time had diminished. And that is not a good thing because it improves my mood quite a bit. So I’m going to try to get that back into my life to help destress myself.

And getting rid of some stress is my new focus this week. Of course, that is easier said than done. The daily noise from our neighbors with roosters and geese is enough to drive anyone nuts. But hopefully, the county zoning and animal control will do their jobs before I snap.

I need to get back to photographing and writing more. I’ve had a few days where I allowed myself to get overwhelmed and forgot the joy and good feeling I get from those activities. I guess my mind hasn’t been in the right place.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • My best friends are some of the most generous people I know on earth. And in many ways.
  • There’s a saying behind every great man is a great woman. Well, I’m not a great man but I certainly have a great woman.
  • One measure I use to define success is being here for my family and hopefully, I’ve shown or done something that has helped them in their lives.
  • When I see people wasting days I feel very sad for them.

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.
