Another Day in Paridise #5 (Memorial Day Pictures)

Hey Everyone,

I hope you are all well, or at least keeping your shit together on a semi decent level. Things have been going good in my world, busy, but good for sure. I feel like I have been trying my hardest to keep my head above water recently, especially now right in summers time distortion field. You know, when its really hard to focus on those routine and monotonous tasks for work, when the daylight is out longer yet the days feel like they go by faster. I also feel like I have been biting off more than I can chew with regard to my schedule and not taking quite as good of care of myself as I need to be doing. This added stress and grind has been around because we were still in a transitional phase between our current and last places.

Fly Fishing the CanalA neighbor was walking by casting their line in the canal in hopes of catching the big one.

Stumped!Stumped!I couldn't help myself when I saw this aging piece of wood on the beach by the canal, it had this ominous look to it that I knew would look good in IR B & W

So WTF Jay? What is this about? Well nothing big, drastic, or life changing really. I feel like this all about re-centering myself, re-evaluating the present and remembering who I am. I mean, you don't forget who you are, but after being cooped up in a either an apartment or condo for the last decade, it feels good to be able to do a lot of the things I used to enjoy that were impossible to do in those places. It's also about trying to take myself out of the tunnel vision I have been in and look around at my life and make sure I am making smart moves and take a deep breath while I can.

You see, I finally had a chance to take my stress level down a notch while visiting Hood Canal this last Memorial Day weekend. When I pulled that proverbial stick out of my butt I felt like some recent events were not representative of my best self. As I continue to look at those choices, I have decided that I need to re-evaluate how I will handle situations moving forward. Since then I have been continuing to think about my plate, whats on it, what all this grinding has been for, what I am doing next, and well if you want to know you will have to stay tuned because I am not even sure myself where life is going to take us.

Who knows whats next, I sure don't but I do know that I want to enjoy these new changes in my life, this beautiful summer with my family and friends before I look up and its dark at 5pm again.


P.S. Please enjoy the images from our most recent trip to Hood Canal.
