Some random shots

One thing I really enjoy is photography, both looking at good photography and taking pictures. Here are a few I have done, just for kicks;

Life is full of choices...

It has been a little over two months since I last posted anything here. It is not for lack of thought, or even material. It is simply because I have needed to prioritize some things, finish(or start) some others, and make choices about going forward in life. In the process of this, I have needed to decide what is important to me, who is important to me, and how to use the time I have effectively.
We have the choice to view our life the way we want, and there is enough bad going on to make the negative reclusive choice the seeming best one to make. But, after letting my self swim in that cesspool for awhile, I am done. I cannot make the world different. I cannot make it fair to those I love who are hurting, suffering, and wondering what is going to happen next. I cannot make events that happened go away as if they didn't. What I can do is choose to control my reactions, choose to be present now, instead of future or past oriented. There is plenty, good and bad, going on now. Instead of focusing on the crap I cannot fix, I will do the things I can, and deal with the other when I can. Some things cannot be fixed, changed, or ignored. So be it, but there are plenty of other things that can be enjoyed, cherished, and appreciated. That is my choice. A choice that leads to many others, but it is the first choice on the path I am taking.
