Thinking inside the box

Leave a comment

I do a lot of thinking in my home office. It kind of resembles a box. 4 walls, a ceiling, a floor, and luckily a window and door. Doing a blog helps get me thinking. The world is your oyster of topics and choices of ways to express them.

Maybe I should concentrate on one good quote a day, and skip the chatter. Or maybe a poem or video. I have lots of opinions maybe I should express those more? Maybe just a photoblog as I once thought. Maybe I should take the laptop outside to the deck or learn how to do a post on the smartphone.

Doing some more reading instead of writing. Doing more carving instead of communicating. Maybe trying nothing other than taking photos I wouldn’t normally take for a few days. Maybe get out of the woods and into a city?

A change of pace is good. So I’ll go with the flow this weekend and see what I can come up with. Maybe some outside-the-box ideas.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • It’s funny how much of George Carlin’s humor is still relevant today that he wrote 3-4-5 decades ago.
  • It’s sad when you think it’s a workday for a moment when it’s not.
  • It’s even worse, not be a workday and end up working.
  • It’s a rainy forecast for the next few days. Warning of possible dreary attitude ahead.

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.
