The morning images

Took a short ride this morning before the resumption of chores and then work tonight. Overcast and cloudy with brief peaks of sun, but it was really nice just below 70 degrees. I did enjoy it because it was early enough where the cicadas weren’t swarming yet. Plus the roads were deserted for the most part and it was warm enough to have the top-down and the tunes on. Took a bottle of ice tea and relaxed stopping at a few spots for a shot or two.

Sunday mornings are the best. I remember when I rode motorcycles, it was Sundays that were the most enjoyable. I’m going to try to start getting back out in the mornings more. Work has been extra busy so getting off at 6 am the only thing I can think of doing is sleeping. But I’m going to adjust to seeing if I can improve some early morning opportunities and also my rest.

I’ve put together a shooting schedule for the week to try to get myself shooting more. It does have me excited and I hope it’s the start of more regular new work.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I feel like I keep misplacing my personal charger.
  • I’m enjoying seeing the joy in people’s faces in doing things together again. Be it a meal or ballgame or movie or trip it’s something that at least for now isn’t taken for granted.
  • A decade or two ago we used to have a phase that we would say when management would pull the plug on resources before projects were finished. It was “declare victory and move on” which I’m sure wasn’t coined there but if it was it was very accurate for some events in history. I just hope we aren’t doing that now with the virus.
