So what can I do to make this a successful week? I got a little bit of a start yesterday when I got a new set of brushes to see if I can paint. And I picked up a few pieces of wood for some carving experience. I didn’t get out to shoot this morning before it clouded up outside so maybe I’ll do a few studio setups.

Today was also productive doing some prep in the workroom and some more prints made for my 15th Street project. I spent some time planning, which I hope shows some results in the future in helping a loved one plan for their senior years. Would I be better served spending time on my own, probably? Would I have been more refreshed if I relaxed or played instead of doing that, probably? But I must try and hopefully succeed because they are loved.

I’d love to plan a trip soon but that isn’t in the cards. We are booked solid for several weeks. But the time will come when we can break away for a day or two or three. Maybe one of these days we will have the time to board a plane and visit something a ways away from home. In the meantime, a local trip will do.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I love seeing birds return in the spring.
  • Who reversed February and March on the calendar in regard to the weather?
  • It feels great to feel good.
  • I get so far behind on phone technology because I grew up using something till it gave out.
  • I see Mike Pence is trying to grow a pair by speaking up now. Too little and way too late.

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.
