What do I want to share today? What insight could I bring to the table? What would be timely or interesting? What unique perspective or angle to a topic or image? What observation or nugget of wisdom could I give?

Late to bed and early to rise leaves sleep in your eyes. Well, it’s early and that is all I could come up with. And here you were looking for some inspirational words or vision. Nope just me here experiencing life one day at a time and learning how to live each day better.

We each discover our own pearls of wisdom along the way. Some we learn by experience. Some lessons by watching others. Take for instance loss. Yes death, each of us has experienced this or will. But not all losses are equal. The time of life you lose a parent. A parent losing a child. A child losing a sibling. Losing grandparents. Each is unique to each one of us. The love of these people touches us in such a personal way it can’t be explained to others. Ultra personal events that have effects on you for a lifetime.

How these deaths/events are explained, interpreted, understood, and lived with are so personal that there is no blanket solution except the one you come to yourself. And that is how you get from one day to the next, and somehow make it better than the previous one.

I’d like to take the time to share a bit more wisdom, especially on a more upbeat topic but the hours of the day run short. So short we are down to minutes. So till tomorrow.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • The trick to life is to not let its disappointments keep you from having a good outlook each morning.
  • I like the spicy chicken sandwich at Chick-fil-A.
  • Really questioning a few long-term business relationships. Changes are on the horizon.
  • Looking forward to a special meeting tomorrow.
  • So far so good so says me.

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.
