Remembering my father-in-law today on his birthday. He was a good man and gave me the most important gift in the world, his daughter. I also remember an older friend who passed today. He is pretty much a second father to one of my best friends. Rest in peace Mr. C and thank you for that boat ride this past summer.

Today’s writing prompt is going to be a tough one. I don’t dream much and when I do I have a hard time recollecting what it was. I don’t have dramatic dreams often at all. Mostly just something related to what is going on in life.

And for the life of me, I can’t even remember a dream I’ve had in a great while. I guess that is the trouble of getting so exhausted and then crashing. I guess my mind and body shut down. And then I never sleep for a long time it seems.

So I’ll share a dream I have sitting here. I dream of growing old with my better half and watching grandchildren grow and flourish. I dream of creating many special memories for my family. I dream of helping others. I dream of great laughter and times ahead.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Learning is fun. Wish I learned that lesson earlier on in life.
  • I feel a sense of urgency all the time now.
  • Sometimes there are treasures in old cardboard boxes.
  • I’m trying to will myself to feel better with mixed success.

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.
