I’m going to try to focus on being more active each day. I was getting a little lazy and relaxed recently. I was reminded about how much fun being inactive is the last few days. And that is NO FUN at all. After a wonderful start to the weekend packed full of activities I was stopped in my tracks halfway through. That was the worst I felt in some time and I let it get the best of me mentally. I wasted time, but at least I’m in the right frame of mind again.

It was an excellent reminder to do as much as I can while I’m a fairly healthy individual. Because as we all eventually learn, time is a gift not to be wasted. And while I’m not 100% today I’ve got the right motivation so like any other day, I should make the best of it. So here we go.

Today I see opportunities. I’m close to finishing one of my 4 wall exhibits in my office. And I’m going to work on that and clean up another one to get started on it tonight.

There is a new museum in DC called Planet Word. It looks very cool and I can’t wait to pay it a visit and then go again someday when my granddaughter starts forming a few more words.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I feel for our Veterans and want to express my appreciation and support.
  • You try working a night shift for a decade or more.
  • Whomever is doing the rain dance, you can stop now.
  • Worry is something I wish I could spend less time on.
  • Life has a way of piling on at times.
  • Will we learn important lessons from our last 20 years in Afganistan?

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.
