It‘s already past midnight. I should be doing this earlier for the sake of accuracy since I’m writing about the 21st of October (Oktober for those of us in Deutschland).
I’m reminded of a Facebook post my cousin shared years ago about a close friend of his. This friend was playing the piano during a church service, and his young daughter came up to him asking a question. Rather than putting his task first and telling his daughter to go sit down, he smiled and listened to her as he continued playing without missing a beat.
My dad called tonight and we talked for about 30 minutes. As with many other family members back home, I really should call more; I’m
One sign of a dangerously ignorant person is their unwillingness to consider, or worse, even listen to a different perspective. This is where we are, worldwide right now. I’m not speaking about those who chose to get vaccinated and go about their business.
Today, I got my mother-in-law set up with her Nexo account and sent 10 XRP as her very first crypto holding. I was surprised to learn how eager she and my father-in-law are to invest in cryptocurrencies. They see the way the world is moving and are very dissatisfied with the financial products offered by traditional banks.
Yesterday while at the mall, I picked up a roll of Agfa APX 100 on a whim while I grabbed some other things from DM. Being that it’s a drug store, there isn’t a wide selection of film, so I took what was available. That slow-burning urge to get out and shoot again has been calling me for a while, and it was time to obey as it’s something that is genuinely missing from my life.
I feel and KNOW that today IS a wonderfully powerful day. ALL positivity. I just woke up after about 7.5 hours of sleep and I’m
I was feeling off balance and depressed yesterday folllowing the senseless murder of Nipsey Hussle. The last time I felt this way was when Michael
Those who follow me on Instagram and Facebook saw me share a few photos from the boxing event in Kaiserslautern that I shot on November 18th. Even as a long-time fan of the sport, I went in with zero expectations. I surely had no clue I’d be hooked after the first few frames.
With Kaiserslautern being a small city, the mall is a really big deal in terms of job opportunities and stimulating the local economy. Any form of change has its detractors, but I think it’s mostly those who don’t want the city to lose its old elements of charm to rampant capitalism
As a man, it’s particularly hard having to watch your woman go through an induced abortion. It’s troubling to witness her suffer through the pain of contractions knowing there’s no life coming forth, and there’s not a thing either of you can do about it.
The initial failure felt good in a way because I knew it was just part of the process of doing something new and not so safe; pushing past my comfort zone forced me to grow. I wrote down exactly where I went wrong (and the things I did right), so I could process that and remember for the next time.
Pablo Picasso’s famous quote reflects my exact mindset these days: “Never permit a dichotomy to rule your life, a dichotomy in which you hate what you do so you can have pleasure in your spare time. Look for a situation in which your work will give you as much happiness as your spare time.”
