I not sure I even know the goal anymore. I thought I knew the goal. Stay healthy, try to keep those you love healthy. You can’t say just stay safe. There as many interpretations of that as there are people. Some can minimize risk, many can’t. The disruption is so great its torn professional, academic, entertainment, travel, restaurants, hotels, air travel apart. Everything is being touched. The best you can hope for is that your companies are making good decisions and can be flexible and that you’re limiting the exposure to yourself and those around you, but maintaining some kind of contact and sanity.

I guess I got riled up today with the changing status of schools in the area. Having family members in the Education field worries me greatly. I can’t imagine what young professionals are feeling now. That uncertainty, if they haven’t been affected already has to weigh on them.

Both my better half and I have issues that make getting this virus a deadly threat. We have wavered in our diligence over the first part of this pandemic. Some done due to family emergencies, some not but overall we are more cautious than most from what I see.

Anyway, I just have a great deal of trepidation about these coming seasons. Fall and winter aren’t my best regardless of the year but this year might be really different and difficult. Going to do my best to keep in good spirits, try to stay positive, keep physically fit, and support family and friends. Oh yeah, I’ll start that stuff as soon as I get over this bronchitis.

OK, I’m going to get off my behind and get the cameras charged and get out the door tomorrow. Even if its cold in the morning I’m going out.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Reading Facebook’s terms of service really makes me wonder about using that system.
  • I look at the beauty and grace of falling leaves and I spend a few minutes smiling watching them fall to earth. Then I think AHHHH Winters coming!
  • It’s too late in life for me to be redefining tired.
  • One of my neighbors is having trouble with boundaries. Even though I’m not a certified teacher I’m good at delivering messages.
  • Much respect to RBG.

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.
