More and less

Leave a comment

I’ve been doing more physical work than usual lately but with less pain. That is the opposite of what usually transpires. Now I could start to make wild assumptions that the loss of some weight is making it more manageable. That cutting out sodas and eating a bit healthier is giving me more strength but I’m not going there. Not yet at least because I really don’t feel that different. Except that, a lot of my old wardrobe fits nicely again.

Unfortunately, that physical work has precluded more work on my crafts but hoping to start a better balance tomorrow with less time on chores. This year I’ve gotten more sun earlier than in past seasons and I’m in the mid-June tan stage already. I do need to spend a little less time in the direct sun for the next few days. Don’t overdo a good thing.

I really need to reach out more to some friends who I’ve had less and less time to interact with. I don’t know how I will make it happen other than trying harder and talking about it less.

I feel as bright as those flowers above. Not bright in a sense of smart but in spirit.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • When you feel you have fully utilized the day, that is living.
  • I see an opportunity. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
  • Anytime I start to think I know a lot about something I look harder and realize I don’t know as much as I thought.
  • If I can just make it through tonight.

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.
