06/15/2020 Present Concern and Future Hope

Enjoying Fam time.

Today I am unsure where to begin. My heart and mind are pulled in so many directions that it seems almost impossible to grasp onto any coherent group of thoughts that would warrant a post. Most of the time, when I sit in the silence and think, my thoughts are not ones I would prefer to share.

With all that is happening in the world and all that needs to be addressed within the walls of my home and within the invisible walls of my stone heart, I feel incapable of writing anything worth sharing right now.

06/06/2020 Post Birthday Lift

Fresh haircuts care of my skilled and wonderful wife.

Again, sorry for the late post. Typically, I want to have these up on Saturday; but life happens and the post didn’t. As I said earlier this year, the the best laid plans of mice and men are laid to waste, and that includes mine.

Last week, I turned 38 years old. My wife took it upon herself to ensure I had a wonderful day, and she succeeded. I felt very loved and very valued. This of course came on the heels of my prior week update wherein I expressed negative feelings about my upcoming day, and my venting them was so negative that I did not post them at all.

More meat on this face than year opening…

Full disclosure. I am not posting this while feeling the best about myself, and while I’m going to be a bit rough, I am not looking for pity, sympathy, or compliments. I’m just riffing on how I feel.

I don’t know even know where to start. I’m making some progress in my office, and I intend to post about it this week.

Of course, I had two other post intended to do last week, and I had something happen today I also intended to post.

So we’ll see what happens…

What happened to the shelves?

So, this is not a display. Unless you want to consider it modern art. But you shouldn’t, And that’s the point. This is a mess.

My office is a mess, and I cannot taking time to display my stuff until I get the store’s stuff in order.

05/16/2020 Reflections Halfway Through May

Posted by on May 16, 2020 in Uncategorized

Surrounded by Inventory…and tired.

We are half-way through May, and the restrictions surrounding COVID-19 continue. Measured openings and limited allowances expand week-over-week; but life is not what it was once 10 weeks ago, and it will not be for some time, if ever. The sad thing is that for all the technological advancement and “disseminated knowledge” of the last few months, the cost and toll have gone far beyond the sick and the dead. The collateral damage of economic shutdown and mandated isolation is not small. People are suffering in all manner of ways well outside a virus.

Spring shall pass under the shadow of fear; here’s to a better summer.
