I just wrote this Kerouac “stream of conscience” style. I wrote it as fast as I could with no reshuffling of the order. Its as honest as I could get. One thing for sure, there are many times more things in life that are beautiful and good vs. Negative and Bad. The beauty in my life just flowed naturally – I didn’t even need to think. Fall Colors is part of photography. Because I’m nearing the end of my long career, its not surprising where work is, but I know for sure that since I still love my work after all these years it has been a great career – more than just a job. Good health would seem to be number one, but because I believe in holistic mind, body and environment as affecting ones health that it is influenced by the things on the list. Good food is part of that and my wife not only is the best chef (better than any restaurant) she has taught me to eat and cook much better and healthier than I used to. Special mention – great coffee and great craft beer.
