Walking OEC

Leave a comment

I took a walk this morning in one of my favorite towns. Sort of like a home away from home. Got married in Ellicott City, worked in Ellicott City, started a business in Ellicott City. So I’m familiar with it. From the 60s when we first moved here, till today, I walk those streets a few times a year, or more when it was working there.

I always find something new. When you get to visit a place and experience each season, it reveals a new town quarterly.

Another thing is you just have to stop and look around. Front back, side to side, up and down. And low and behold things reveal themselves.

Sometimes things pop out of areas you wouldn’t think of.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I have a very hard time understanding people who don’t have an appreciation for life. And even less tolerance for them.
  • Some days I feel like I’ve maximized every minute of the day. I either feel great for such and accomplishment or to exshausted to appreciate it.
  • It’s one thing when I cost myself sleep, its an entirely different thing when others interfere.

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.
