After a long absence I decided to reactivate my blog. Lately there have been a lot of things rumbling around in my head that I want to get down on paper…or rather on the web. I’m not sure that anything that goes on in my head is worth sharing, but there is an overwhelming need to get it out. That means that the format of this blog is going to change a bit. Instead of being mostly photographs there will be a mix of my reflections, my rants and raves, and the occasional photograph. So I hope anyone that stumbles on this page will bear with me and maybe through a bit of feedback will let me know if I’m on the right track or not.
Since the last time I wrote I have seen a lot of changes in my life. The most significant is that I have made the decision to retire from my employer. It will be a phased process, and beginning on Monday I will be working four-day weeks. It may not seem like it but that is going to need some significant adjustments. For one thing I want to make sure that I don’t just sit around and do nothing on that extra day off. So now I have to decide whether to get involved with some charitable endeavor, get more active with my hobby of photography, or make myself more useful around the house. Right now just sitting around and doing nothing seems like the best choice.
Another pending changes that my wife and I decided to downsize and move into a smaller home. That involves getting the present house ready to sell, making repairs and updating, and generally making the house appealing to a potential buyer. Just like deciding what to do with my spare time, the choices, at times, are so overwhelming that it’s impossible to do anything. Eventually it will get to the point were doing nothing is not an option, and that time is fast approaching.
So dear reader, I invite you to follow along as these changes occur and I hope that you’ll give comments, criticisms, and sometimes general support. Until next time, enjoy the surprises that pop up in your life.
