Waves in the sand

Leave a comment

I love walking in the sand. Seeing windblown waves or lines drawn from grasses blowing back and forth in the wind or animal prints as they strole by. Or our own footprints. The feel of fine sand and the sound of waves hitting and retreating from the shore help me have a few weeks of peace each year.

It’s hard to think about progress with all the chaos in the world and in each of our individual lives. You try to be positive and enjoy life. To share it with special people and do special things. You work hard to improve your loved ones’ lives and help others when possible.

Progress is being made in an individual and collective way. It may not seem like it at times. And that is what I try to avoid looking at. I just have to keep focused on finding what I can do to improve things. To try to do something for someone or many each day. When the waves take down your ramp, rebuild.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • It’s really difficult to sleep during the day.
  • If you own a convertible tomorrow is a mandatory top-down day.
  • When you feel productive, take advantage of the feeling.
  • I need to do some reading but it’s dangerous when I’m this tired.

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.
