That’s it

Inspiration in the professional part of life has risen again. Feeling a lot more motivated and relaxed on the job that pays the bills. I guess one thing that makes it relaxing is that time is short in that pursuit. A few more years and then I’ll start to pursue other interests. I have more than enough items to fill that void when it happens. I wished a few people I know would look forward to hanging up the professional shingle and moving on to other loves and pursuits. But I understand it’s hard for some to accomplish that.

I’ve decided to start one of those pursuits early and head into a project based on the time and courage of someone I know. I was wavering and I probably still will but I’m going to forge ahead. There are opportunities in life and I hope I don’t pass this one by. I got some positive feedback from people I respect and I’ve used that to get a good start already.

I’m going to have to fold a few minutes in every day now to get this moving faster and faster because timing is important. After all, so many involved with this are older now. An example is I have to call a wonderful woman I’ve known for decades who is 91 and pick her memories. I started working on the dedication and titles also. Also decided on what email address to use for all the communications needed. So off I go on another tangent. Of course, I’ll be making it up as I go because of time constraints.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Sometimes people surprise you in a positive way.
  • It’s not that I get more done after a good night’s sleep, it’s just that I feel better doing it.
  • I swear there is heroin in ice cream.
  • Don’t concentrate on a person’s absence, concentrate on their essence and joy they gave.
  • The day I don’t learn something, is a lost day.

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.
