Sunny disposition

I’m trying to think more positively and share a better attitude. Hard thing to accomplish as a realist at times but I’m improving. I’m giving it the old college try. So I changed up my Monday a bit. I didn’t get proper rest to start off with so I’m conscious of being touchy so I’m not stressing and trying to do too much.

I’m also limiting the news input today and I’m going to enjoy watching some NBA action. My guess is this might be one of the few leagues to finish a season and playoffs so I’m not going to miss this. Sorry, that was my pragmatic side seeping out.

I’m saddened to see schools at the K-12 and some colleges already struggling with the virus. That doesn’t bode well for the fall sports seasons that haven’t been canceled already. I would have hoped our communication and planning would have been better in the few re-openings that have happened.

It’s going to be an interesting fall season. I hope that we all can have the patience and civility needed to get through the rest of this year. Somehow I don’t think watching the leaves turn is going to be an adequate substitute for football for some people.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • When I give someone a photo I’ve taken I give them something to remember me by even though its not of me.
  • It’s funny watching baseball games without fans. But then I think of a couple of fellow Yankee fans and I can still see us all reacting to each highlight with the same joy and fervor as we always had. Maybe if we are lucky we can get back to the real joy of the game at the stadiums next year.
  • Each day it gets easier to tell who the selfish people are.
  • Taking time to do something well is worth its weight in gold.
