It’s getting kind of long

Leave a comment

I haven’t had a haircut in over 4 months now. I know my better half really doesn’t want to hear this but I’m kind of liking it longer again and might just let it go a few more months and see what develops. I think I cut my ponytail off about 2 decades ago. Not sure about getting that length again but this is good for now.

It was a rather musical weekend. The first song was an old classic from CSNY from 1974 live performance Almost Cut my Hair. Jeez, I wish I had seen all 4 together. I’ve seen Crosby Stills and Nash but Neil Young ads another layer that makes it special. Sometimes I forget how much I really liked their music. I listened to many other songs and it gave me an idea of a new chapter in a book I’m working on.

Almost cut my hair
Happened just the other day
It’s gettin’ kind of long
I could’ve said it was in my way

But I didn’t and I wonder why
I feel like letting my freak flag fly
And I feel like I owe it, to someone, yeah

Again I let a few days slip away from me. I really have to make better use of my time. It’s not like I’ve been lazy, busy as hell with the job that pays the bills, yard, and home chores. A little family and friend time and I’m peeling another month off the calendar like I did today. Yeah I know I’m late. I’m always a few days after the 1st before changing them.

All I can do it to try to do better tomorrow. Maybe I’ll try some morning shooting again after work tonight. I so look forward to the day I can shoot for a few hours each day. And then carve some, and then write some and then draw some. And still, have time for all the chores and errands and family and friends. So yes I’ll replace the job that pays the bills with my hobbies. One can dream can’t one?

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I need to think about solutions to problems. Because there is certainly no shortage of them.
  • There is little sense in gathering more tools when you don’t take advantage of all the ones you have.
  • I feel guilty that I’m not keeping up with all the blogs I love.
  • Every time I feel a bit warm inside I just step outside and that cures that thought.
  • Feeling motivated again.

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.
