No Foolin

I love the season of nature’s mushroom clouds. What I don’t like is the crossover day. That is today I believe where we have less daylight and more night. We are on our way to being buried in the darkness of winter. I’ve come to realize it’s not just the cold, it’s the lack of sunlight I get during these coming months.

It’s compounded because I work nights and sleep till around noon if I’m lucky. So that leaves only a few hours of daylight to enjoy and recharge. And that is not enough before I’m back in artificial light.

The fact that pain sometimes slows me or even takes time out of any day pisses me off. This hasn’t been a good month for feeling good. And then, I get a note from my orthopedic office that September is Pain Awareness Month. Actually, they didn’t need to tell me that, I’m very aware of pain like everyone who deals with it.

But tomorrow is another day and hopefully one that we can all feel a little better.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Remember the days when there was just a radio in the car? An AM radio.
  • I love losing myself in music.
  • I make progress each day but I feel like I’m failing.
  • If sleep weren’t necessary everything on the schedule might fit.

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.
