that Spark

I was wondering where that personal and professional spark I used to see in some people went to? Hell, I used to wonder what I did to my creative spark for decades after I buried it. But I found it again and I feel lucky as hell.

You need a spark in life in some fashion. Some people carry around a box of sparklers they have so much energy in so many areas. But a few will pull you through. I hope to tickle a few of my sparks today to put me in a better place.

I’m going to try a new spark this week by trying my hand in the kitchen. Making something really good to eat is almost as good as a good picture. I guess that is why I rarely take food pictures. As soon as my visual or smell senses are triggered the time between that and eating is too short to grab the camera.

But I’ll take a break from food to try to get a few new images this week.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • The final series coming up for the boys of summer.
  • Know yourself well. The more you like what you see, the better you’re doing day by day.
  • I think I have a new goal in life. I’m well underway in redefining Tired.
  • I see Coke the makers of the diet drink Tab are discontinuing the drink. I wonder if someone will make a New Tab?
  • I always keep a few of the first photos that I was proud of around to see how far I’ve come.

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.
