Tude shift

Leave a comment

I had an attitude shift for the better yesterday. One that was needed to free the creative thoughts and ideas. Mood sets such an important tone for everything. I guess some artists use the struggle for inspiration. Usually, it takes away my inspiration. And now that I have it back I’m calling deep within myself to think outside the box.

And it’s a good thing because a few days of vacation at home relaxing and organizing and completing some tasks before the year-end feels good. A huge year ahead and lots of uncertainties to ride shotgun the whole year with us.

They will not deter me, it’s going to be a great year, maybe the best in a long time. Having two functioning arms after years of pain is going to be sweet. I hope to get on the basketball court again and maybe play a round of golf once again with one of my best friends. I was just starting to learn the game 4 years ago when I had my first rotator cuff tear.

It’s going to be a special year with family and friends also. One that I’m going to try to make special with a lot of effort and focus on them. I’ve already got a jump on it by writing more this month to my children and friends. And I’m going to be there every time they need me.

I hope to enlist some of the expertise of some friends as I get started on some creative endeavors. I’m going to wear out this nice Canon printer I have.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Looks like we could be zooming out of the office again.
  • The only good thing I can think about winter is that your ice cream doesn’t melt on the way home from the grocery store.
  • Did you ever realize how easy it is to fill up vacation hours with other work and tasks?
  • Sometimes I think for asking for a coming year of health is selfish but I’m going to do it anyway.
  • Attention – Friday 12/31 – amatuer night – avoid the roads.

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.
