Missed it

Leave a comment

Do you ever work hard but feel like the accomplishment isn’t there. That was my weekend. That’s ok because another week is starting any minute so the chance to find that accomplishment is lurking around the corner.

I feel like May has slid by and I missed it. Between being sick, events, chores, and work, it’s been a blur. Good thing there are another 8 days of it. Maybe I can interject a little of my life back into it.

I was just thinking that having spent all that time in DC working, I never made the time to see more of the sights there. Well, an opportunity missed. It’s still right down the road (about 50 miles) so it’s not like I can’t make a point of it in the future. It’s a wonderful town to photograph in.

But it makes me reflect on wasted opportunities and that I need to focus on not doing that in the future.

Today I did something for my better half. It wasn’t much of anything but it meant something to her and that is what is important. Because she is important. And it felt great to make her feel good.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I can’t say working in the heat of the day is no sweat.
  • If you surprise yourself once in a while, you’re living.
  • Sometimes owners can make companies great. But usually, it’s the people that work for them that do.
  • I swear they sneak in a few extra Mondays per year. I have yet to catch them but I know it’s going on.

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.
