My perspective and priorities have changed and I’m adjusting quickly. It’s just part of life. Sudden and unexpected things happen. And that is okay. It’s how we react and move on. Thankfully my mental outlook is about as strong as it has been in my lifetime.

And the steady approach is keeping progress happening. Like the line of slow-moving lawnmowers below, I’ll keep plugging away step by step, task by task.

I’m looking forward to the warmer weather after tomorrow morning’s early chill.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I was listening to a friend with some issues he was struggling with. I smiled but remained quiet and instead of sharing, I was a good listener and supportive. It’s not a contest as to who has the most or worst issues in life to deal with. It’s helping where and when you can. Be it by being there and or with actions. Plus it’s a good reminder that all of us have issues from time to time.
  • I’m finding focusing more intently on an issue, task, project or person yields a much better result. I’ve spread myself too thin at times and I can be more help to those closest to me if I don’t.
  • The incessant barking of the dogs next door is starting to bother me. The house is completely closed up and I can hear each and every bark sitting in my office.
  • I see the first frost advisory of the season. Well at least if I get a bit tired working tonight I can step outside and be wide awake again.

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.
