I’m learning to listen to my children. Not that I haven’t before. But as they have grown into adults their insight is valuable in a different way then when they were children. Not that I didn’t learn a lot then from them and about myself.

Listen to music. Listen to nature. Listen to a train going by. Listen to the waves hitting the shore. Listen to a V8 roar to life.

Listen to the lessons life has taught you and others. Listen to history because if you don’t your doomed to repeat it. Listen to your elders, well some of them.

Listen carefully. Listen to your heart. Listen to people you respect. Listen to people who are experts. Listen to those not guided by money. And don’t listen to the man behind the curtain.

The pictures that I share are courtesy of my better half and her hard work in the garden. Me, I just step outside on a sunny day and press the shutter button.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • It’s always deadline time.
  • I went to the dentist today for my normal cleaning. I was nervous before I went. I’m nervous after the appointment. But my teeth feel good and I got out with no drilling. And they say its good for your overall health not to neglect your dental care.
  • So who are the brave parents that are going to sacrifice their children so schools can open? And does the principal pick the teachers and bus drivers won’t be around the next school year?

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.
