Coming back


My spirits are improving which makes my creative juices come alive again and therefore I’m getting back into a nice grove of work again. I’m trying to ignore this sinus infection that seems to have taken root. Between work, chores, doctor appointments, emissions testing on the old car, getting gas and blah blah blah, I find myself on the last worknight of the week.

In my few free minutes today, I grabbed a sandwich from Duchess and went to Centennial Park to eat before my appointment in Dorsey Hall. It is a peaceful spot on a cool breezy afternoon. I wish I had the time to do a trip around the lake but it wasn’t in the cards. Maybe a little treadmill time during my lunch break this evening.

I found as an amateur photographer this post (No one cares about your Photography, and that’s okay) from Photofocus very helpful. The key word in this all was confidence.

Someone needs to tell young people to retire before the time comes when they retire and transfer from their full-time job to a full-time doctor’s patient.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I’m feeling lucky today. I avoided adding a third cancer to my list when my 2 skin tests came back benign.
  • There isn’t a bad time to catch me unless you want to ruin my good time.
  • If you don’t smile at every picture your children send you of your grandchildren then make some changes in your life that allow you to.
  • I have no problem with insects, as long as they stay outside my home.

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.
