Mishmash of thoughts


I’m not burdened by creating that magical lead sentence or paragraph to grip the reader and draw them into the post. Mine is to create an image that could eclipse any words I could or have used and speak many more.

Yesterday I was reminded to think of design without norms. Actually, it was a 3-year-old playing with Legos that reminded me.

I will never figure out the puzzle of why it’s so easy to write some days and for others, it’s like nothing is there.

I look at a photo on my wall of my better half and I in our pool on floats what must have been 3 decades ago but it feels like yesterday. Well, maybe last week.

If ever there was a period in time to work in the Newspaper industry I think I luckily hit exactly the right decades.

I’m not satisfied with a lot of the photos I might post. But if I used those criteria and just rambled on with words, it wouldn’t be much of a photo blog.

If the amount of shows devoted to gambling on tv doesn’t scare you it should. We aren’t seeing the true cost yet but they are growing out there. They are people gambling more than they can afford to lose.

I need to pull the trigger on a new firepit purchase.

Where would society be without screwups like me?

Being a perpetual student in life is a wise course to pursue.

I’m exhausted and the workweek is just beginning.

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. Beautiful photos.
    You’re right about the newspaper era. I hit it at just the right time, too. I often read your post before going to bed. They’re very calming.
