Busy Life

This past weekend I spent some time with an old friend at her house. In her early Seventies, she continues to work, even though she retired twenty years ago. She enjoys what she is doing and it keeps her mind young. I understand this and I feel that I will be the same; always working…

A Walk in the Woods

at about 4:30pm this afternoon, I decided to accept the facts as they were, pick up leash, collar, and bags… heading off to the pathway loop through meadow and woods with marlin. it was a very nice, late afternoon stroll – just marlin and me. The crisp air and warm sunshine all felt good. I’m…

So I Dance

I realize that I really do function better when I have some sort of music playing in the background of my life. Music gets me moving and puts me into a more positive state of emotion. It reminds me of people, places and so much more. I have seen a lot of great concerts in…

A Long Day is A OK

I am grateful for the NFTs we finally figured out how to sell. I’m grateful for the IT support when backend goes to hell. I’m grateful for my brother that lives down south. I’m grateful for the return of my good health. I’m grateful for the gifts as I sit on the ledge. I’m grateful…

Collaboration

Today I sat a table with several other people, working out processes for a warehouse and warehouse management system. When you have people working together to find a solution, a common goal, looking at things differently and having a resolution that everyone can agree on, that is a wonderful thing. It is too bad that…

Whistle While You Work

I have been moving through a COVID infection this past week – almost to the minute as I write this. I speak from personal experience; the symptoms of infection can be quite debilitating to a quiet moroseness that just slowly drains away any juice for activities that take any effort at all. I still have…

Well…

This title can mean several things. I am well. Well, what now? I fell down the well. Apparently sailors are not very adept in using a large vocabulary, which is why Port means several things as well as Log. I guess it would matter on how the word is used in a sentence before you…

Helpful

Tonight I am grateful for Liz’s help this past weekend. I tested positive for COVID. Jonah had the flu. She stepped up in a big way, running around town, picking up vitals and vittles, and checking in on us – making sure we were taken care of. And she walked Marlin, making sure he was…

Hmmmmm

What to be grateful for today? My health? Well, yes, except I apparently have COVID; but I feel fine. I could be grateful for my wealth; not monetarily, but what I do have is plenty for me to be happy. My family and friends? I am always grateful for them. I guess what I am…

How’s it lookin’

If you are from Southern California, LA County south to Tijuana, that title looks perfectly normal and sounds so when spoken out loud. I love my brother’s last post, he brought some of the pain onto himself but he realized it, took ownership of it and found a great version of Gimme Shelter by the…

Just a Shot Away

I am grateful for this piece of music. I am attempting to complete a simple memorial tribute for a brother that passed on… And the technical difficulties have me wanting to pull my fuckin’ hair out and say, “Fuck it!”. But as I am waiting for the chaos in my mind to die down, taking…
