This afternoon and evening I ran across a few things that struck varying chords inside of my conscience and being. The chords were plucked strongly enough that I thought I should take a few minutes and write them down for my future benefit and possibly yours as well.
Today I signed into Facebook. Not so much because I like to use Facebook, but rather because the business that I do some work with has a Facebook page, part of my job is to make sure that it is kept up to date, messages get answered etc. Well, when I first signed in my news feed showed up. Which is all fine and good because it allows me to stalk my friends for a few minutes before heading to the actual Facebook page I originally signed in for. Today when I signed in… the first thing I saw was a sticker. I’d heard that Facebook was going to add stickers, but I guess I kind of brushed it off as an internet rumor. Unfortunately...
The other evening I spent some time by myself thinking about life, love, and the pursuit of happiness. Well, at least the life part of that... and maybe a bit of the happiness part.
At any rate.
I started thinking about what all has been going on in the past few months in my life. The job search. The bit of vacation. Some opportunities that looked really good and fell through... some opportunities that didn't look quite as good but worked out.
And that I think is it. Life.
Now... for the rest of the story. What I've been working on recently.

This evening I was working on a few images that will be used for several marketing campaigns around my Dad's farm in the next few weeks. I couldn't help but notice a couple of images that I took while we were at the beach a few weeks ago... so I worked on one of them.
As I finished this one up I couldn't help but feel like it was a bit serendipitous that I would work on an image that correlated with a couple thoughts that I've been thinking lately.
Yesterday morning I woke up in my bunk bed in the tiny room I shared with my brother. As I laid in bed I realized that it was over. My week of vacation had come to an end and all that was left was to finish the packing up and drive the four and a half hours back to Rustburg.
So I did the only logical thing there was to do. I spent a few minutes thinking about riding the waves of life on a boogie board.

I’m going to have to spend some time working on my computer, but I do want to minimize the amount of time I spend on my devices… So I won’t be blogging next week. Unless of course the urge comes over me and I have some spare time and I can’t help but type a post. Which could happen I guess. At any rate. Have a good week and I’ll be back on Monday the 8th of September. If you need something to do checkout the guys behind the video above. They are interesting fellows. :)
