Morning Notes

Good morning, Dear Ones.

I am thrilled with the wins I’ve been experiencing lately in my life. The excellent things keeping my focus also have been therapeutic as well. I don’t have a long share this morning, but I haven’t smiled as much as I am lately, in ages.

I am so thankful to the One from Whom all blessings flow.

Great Update!

I’ve been on a roll sharing creative content on a brand new (to me) app. A friend of mine introduced my wife to it & she invited me. I’ll have my link to it up in the near future (once my account gets verified.) So far I’m loving it, and not only can I post art, but I can post photos, videos, and snippets of my poetry as well. It’s like the perfect creative outlet, if anything can be called such a thing.

Sickening, Tragic News

I just heard about a young kid basically, (only 18) who was killed for his conservative politics. Whatever happened to reasoned discussion and debate?

I hate how divided my country has become, I’m sick to death of it, honestly. According to the murderer, his victim was a right wing extremist.

I’ve been around long enough to know that word/phrase gets thrown around far too easily these days though.

Belated Afternoon Notes

It has been a very chill day. I have a few new art pieces to share to my niche art blog, which I will in a while. Earlier, I watched “Home Improvement” while I was eating a late breakfast with my family.

I’m back on low carb, and also drinking a lot more water as well.

My wife is taking my son to a picnic thing for his grandma’s work soon, so I’m sure he’ll enjoy that. I don’t know what else is going on today, guess we’ll just take it as it comes.

Morning Notes

I’ve been on a roll with the new art, and the options with the new program seem endless. I even have at least one person interested in a possible buy, so if that goes through it’ll be awesome.

In other notes, my wife has an appointment shortly, and then we’ll go have lunch together. Currently, we are watching shows and I am trying to think of new design ideas.

I’m not sure what all else the day will bring, but hopefully great things.

Thoughts

A while back, I mentioned a stock image/photography site. It was my intention to become a consistent contributor there, but so far, I’ve earned literally nothing from what I have shared there.

So, that’s a bit disappointing, especially after I was so invested and hopeful. I don’t want to be wasting my time, spinning my wheels, I’ve done that too often before.

Maybe I’m too impatient, but I do have a family.

I need to be spending my time as much as possible doing things that will get results and provide for them.

Am I giving up on the site entirely? No, but it won’t be as high priority as I originally intended. From what I’ve seen thus far, my time is better spent elsewhere.

Evening Notes

Hello again, everyone,

I had a very productive day (once my hands felt better.) I went back to trying out a new (to me) art program I’ve really been enjoying. I have fresh content to share on my niche art blog as well, so looking forward to bringing those to you all if you happen to follow me there.

Also, had a good, albeit brief conversation with a fellow artist friend of mine.

Final notes:

Since my son is out of school through the weekend, I’ll be getting as much time in with him as I can. Right now, he’s asleep though. My wife suggested we take him to a food truck tomorrow, I think he’ll love that.

Anyway, going to wrap this up for now.

Micro Morning Notes

So, as you may have noticed if you follow my niche art blog, I went on a sharing spree there yesterday. I also shared several other places, and I am, if I’m honest, in a lot of pain right now in regards to my hands. I don’t think I’ll be spending a lot of time punching the keys today. I’ll be back when I’m feeling up to it, thanks in advance for your patience.

Notes On Jeff German

I just read about an investigative journalist being stabbed to death outside his home in Las Vegas.

His name was Jeff German.

According to what I read, the perpetrator is still being pursued. I didn’t know anything about German prior to the crime, but my hope is that the circumstances of his death aren’t the main thing he’s remembered for.

He was actually, (according to further reading) quite a skilled individual in his field. I do hope his family gets swift justice.

Day Notes (Sept. 2, 2022)

Good morning, Dear Ones.

Punching the keys early because later I’ll be hanging out with my family. My son is off from school through the weekend, so glad for that.

Presently, I’m watching a movie, might share notes on it later at my review blog, haven’t made a decision.

In other notes, I got to talk with my mother briefly yesterday, which was good, except she’s still grieving my grandma’s death, obviously. We’re all dealing, some of us better than others.

One way I’m dealing is simply by holding tighter to the Loved ones I have left. That’s kind of what today is about, trying to get in more quality time with them.

My mother said she woke up from a nap yesterday and reflexively looked for my grandma, before she was fully awake.

Then it registered (again) that my grand is dead. My heart breaks for my own loss, but also for hers, they were very close.

As I mentioned in a previous post, I do take comfort that my grand knows the Lord. Anyway, I’ll go ahead and wrap this up before it becomes novel length. Thanks for reading, and much Love.
