I think of something that is timeless. A song, a story, a movie, a poem, an image. Timeless is unique to all of us but none of us are timeless. Maybe for a generation but not forever like a classic painting or building. And what the hell describes timeless. I mean humans haven’t been around all that long according to some in the fields beyond my knowledge.

If I’m a lucky man I’ll create something timeless for my friends and family. Be it a memory, love, laughter, stories, pictures, or carving/engraving. Maybe I’ll do it and won’t even know it. Maybe I’ve already done it. I hope so because I’ve been working hard at creating memories. Sometimes not always intentional.

I certainly know the children will always be the pride and joy of my life. I hope I’ve created a lot of memories for them.

One of my best friends and I were reliving a few memories on the phone today. Having such good friends for over 4-5 decades is a blessing and one that sometimes seems like it may be timeless. Of course, my better half and I are timeless. We will be with each other till we can’t be.

I just remembered that Mother Nature is timeless. Isn’t that a beautiful ending.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • It felt good making someone laugh who is having a very difficult time.
  • The rhythm of a great tune can carry you through a day. But a stick shift will put a smile on your face.
  • I really feel much younger than my age now. It’s funny because when I was young I felt much older than my age.
  • My wounded wing is not improving. You don’t realize how much you use your dominant hand/arm till it’s not functioning 100%.

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.
