An early start on learning


I should have gotten out earlier but work went late this morning. But at least I got my behind outside for a few minutes to watch the sky be painted with the morning light.

Think I’ll try some weather-related photography with the coming days of rain and thunderstorms. I love warm summer mornings and nights.

I’m working on shifting my schedule slightly to take advantage of some shooting time. Hopefully, I can sustain the effort.

I’m usually so pressed for time that I barely have time to write and find/take a photograph let alone come up with some insightful thoughts or observations. But part of that is not applying the best of myself each day and choosing something else to do. Maybe some laziness, or stressed out from a number of things, or too tired from working the job that pays the bills and the support of the home and yard. We have added caregiver to the mix recently also.

It’s time I started to bloom and by that I mean using the tools available to me.

So here is to a new day and a new effort in each one that somehow enhances my knowledge sharing some fun or an image that could be enjoyed.

Time to adapt to change and set my sights higher.

I’ve got another wake-up call and I’m motivated again but for some reason, it feels stronger. I feel like I’m thinking again. Planning and creating. Excited about learning and trying some new things.

So I’m going to get busy reading some help files on the tools available here. So be prepared for a few mistakes along the way. I can already see if I incorporate more design I’m going to need more images.

  • Don’t forget to have fun.
  • Pay little attention to crickets or critics.
  • One of these days the continued doing will result in success.

I’m already seeing the issues of using some of these tools when viewed in different end devices. I sit here on a computer and create and view this and other sites through them. While I realize a lot, yes probably a majority might be viewing it on a mobile device or tablet. That sucks in some ways but I’m not going to let it deter me.

I’ll work on my design and content until I get something to be proud of. But please bear with me while I get there.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I’m excited about photography even when its a rainy day.
  • For some reason, I can’t get the thought of crabcakes out of my head.
  • I’m really glad I like my home.
  • I’m not worried about having a beach body this year. I’m worried that just going to the beach might be deadly.

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.
