This guy at the edge of the shore says sea levels are rising. I’d say he has the right vantage point. Google says 40% of our population in the U.S. lives in coastal areas but it only represents 10% of the land in this country. Look at it this way, at least we have someplace to retreat to. I wonder how we expect the world to work together when we can’t even agree on things at home.

I wouldn’t mind being back at the beach now. The thought of a long winter season away from it is depressing. Only a few weeks ago I had my toes in the sand and the salt breeze blowing in my face. And what do I see as I walk to the sliding door in the basement but the snow shovels lurking in the corner? I hope it waits to snow till my shoulder is fully recovered.

No problem, I’ve made it through past winters and I hope to make it past this one. But as I said to my friends today. I opened the door felt the cold and I shut it and decided to stay in today. This may be repeated many times in the coming months.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I can now raise the camera to my eyes and hold it there for more than a few seconds and take pictures. Not too many though.
  • The space heater has been activated. Man cave secure and warm.
  • Pain can take important minutes of the day away.
  • Do you ever wonder how many more calendars you will get in your lifetime.

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.
