Straight rope, bent shadow

I looked down at my arms today and I noticed wrinkles I hadn’t seen before as I bent my arm. I guess age has started to catch up with me but I’m not feeling it. At least the last few days which is a nice reprieve.

This has been a great week and I hope to keep it going with the holiday weekend approaching with family and friends. For a multitude of reasons, I’m feeling better about life and the future. Maybe it’s the thought of another grandchild on the way very soon.

It could be the closing in on retirement and the thought of getting on with my true interest now. I’ve picked up the camera the last few days and I’ve gotten busy again with a few woodworking projects. Just two of my favorite hobbies to play with.

Maybe it’s walking each day a little more now. A new habit I hope I can maintain.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Eating well is a real perk in life. But it makes me also think of people who can’t get enough to eat and the reminder email that came from the Maryland Food Bank. Their call for some help will be answered tomorrow.
  • I wish I had the time to watch every sunset every day.
  • Never take a warm shower for granted.

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.
