I apologize

1 Comment

I used to be a much more active reader of the WP blogs but I have fallen off due to time constraints. I don’t like doing that because I know I’m missing posts I would be enjoying. So last night I did something about it and hope to be a much more active reader myself and acknowledge people’s good work with likes and comments.

Reading and learning bring me enjoyment. But so working and creating. So getting the balance on those is a goal.

I’m looking forward to tomorrow. I’m going to throw the camera bag in the car and venture out before having to work the last night shift of the week. I hope it warms up a bit because that wind today was biting. I’ve got to stop the weather from limiting my activities.

Today I’m just thankful for another healthy day. Except for that slight headache, it was a good day. A very good friend’s husband just took a bad fall landing himself in the hospital. I get more and more appreciative of each day I can be on my feet and not at the doctor or hospital. Taking health for granted leaves you worrying about the small stuff. If you have your health, you have almost everything. You have the opportunity for tomorrow. And what better gift is that.


Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Getting into my senior years I’ve found a magnifying glass is useful for other things than burning ants in the summer sun.
  • The song “Changes” from Black Sabbath is one that makes me reflect back on my life and future.
  • There are moments when I’m overcome with sadness. They have seemed to increase with age.
  • I hate trying on real suits. It reminds me of periods of time when I could fit into a few of them. And yes I’m keeping them in hopes of one day using them again. For what I don’t know but I’d like to fit into that nice double-breasted pinstripe again.

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.

  1. So agree with that comment about good health.
