Doesn’t the sun feel good

Leave a comment

I love sunny mornings. I’ve had it with cloudy days recently. I know with the good comes the bad but today I appreciate the good we have in the mid-Atlantic now. The first real good night of sleep I’ve had in over a week was last night. One more chance tonight before I flip into Nocturnal Man again. Ops, that night of sleep looks in real jeopardy with the Lakers/Warriors on late this evening. Maybe a pre-game nap.

What is it? What is going to shock you or me into action? Maybe gun violence, or abortion rights. How about Social Security and Medicare cuts? How about no police or nurses, because we as a society have made those professions intolerable. Maybe your home is burglarized, your car stolen, or a family member assaulted and you will change our criminal justice system?

Maybe how we are killing the planet but at the same time trying to solve that problem by killing each other first by knocking on the wrong door or pulling in the wrong driveway or going into the wrong neighborhood or just running into the wrong person at the wrong time at the wrong place.

Maybe a homeless family with children who are starving. Whatever shocks you, get involved in the solutions. It’s going to give me another thing to expand upon in retirement.

I found another friend who agrees that gambling is the death of sports as we know it today. It’s only a matter of time before some major scandal in one or multiple leagues will bring it all down. Well, greed wins again till it all collapses.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Lunch break, I only take one when I’m working for myself.
  • Supreme Court – Supreme Con
  • For some reason, people feel very comfortable giving me deadlines. I think I’ve lived long enough under others’ ideas.
  • Leaving the TV off is becoming a habit.
  • This week is more time on the treadmill. If some was good, more must be better.

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.
