In reading about blogs the recommendations for finding your niche and running with it. I guess I didn’t and did take that advice. While I use all my own images, it’s not focused on photography as I first thought when I started. Images always inspire thought and I just transferred that to rambling on in my blog. And I learned along the way I like to write and thought I’d pursue that craft also.

Sometimes I still think I’m searching for my niche in life even entering my senior years. And I’m fine with that because it leaves doors open. For instance, I still think there is no good reason to jump out of a perfectly good airplane in a parachute packed by someone you don’t know and go skydiving. But in a decade or two I might feel differently.

We are all searching for our niche, the right job, the right partner, the right home, the right inspiration, the right sport, and a gazillion other choices. Different interests take priority at different times in our lives. I’m just glad I’ve been given a long time to search for mine and each day I feel I’m getting closer to finding some more of them.

So let me get back to life and tending to my many niches.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • It’s nice to have a local garage you can trust.
  • OC Police has a video out called see something, say something. Well, I saw something and I’m saying something because it looked like the officer doing the repeated knee to the midsection was abusing someone needlessly.
  • I wish Miss Scott’s donations would inspire more from others with so much.
  • Always searching for something better doesn’t allow you to appreciate where you are, what your doing, and who you’re with.

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.
