Reflecting...

...a past acquaintance reached out to me on Facebook last night - a woman who used to work with my mother, and was trying to reach her.


I know this person from the past - her and her boyfriend actually went with my family to a concert many, many years ago when I was finishing high school. I had lunch with her a few times while attending college and we attended some business related events together. She is a couple years older than I am and was into her career at a time when I was just finding my way into adulthood.


In the course of our conversation we talked about the paths our lives have taken - we both have three kids, one girl being the oldest and two boys. Her children, quite similarly, are all only a couple years older than each of mine all in about the same distance in years between them.


She also mentioned to me a reference to her late husband. Inquiring a bit further, she directed me to a memorial to him on his former employer's website. He was 39 and succumbed to cancer. His children then would have been just a bit younger than mine are now....


...it is one of those moments of self realization... I can't imagine my children having to endure this. I can't imagine what his family had to endure with him...


My heart is a bit heavier right now and probably will be for a while as I ponder this... mortality and the unpredictability of life.

I have to second the above comment. As a daughter who lost her father to cancer, even as an adult, it was and still is difficult. I hope there is something for them to remember him by, for when they are older, they can look back at it and remember who he was and how much he loved his children.



That's one of the most difficult things for a child to endure, the loss of a parent at a young age.





 

I've got that feeling...

I feel productive today - just because I finished cleaning the chicken coop and I know they will get to have a little time in a clean, soft bed of shavings.


Before they completely ruin it.


But that is part of raising chickens. The layers are nice chickens - all seem to be of good temperament.


Friday I get the broilers that Morri and I will raise here for a couple months. I do enjoy having them around. Considering getting a layer or two to keep here as well, but I don't know if I want chickens year round in two places.


I would love to just have a farm. Raise chickens, pigs, turkeys and maybe some cows. Have some acreage to garden and raise my own fruits and vegetables. Maybe some areas for wine grapes and blueberries... I guess that would be one of my goals for the future - to have a place like that.

It's causal...

...last night, a casual acquaintance asked me if I would be interested in photographing a wedding... a friend of a friend of a friend that I met at a party back in December... she is studying to be a fashion designer and we struck up a conversation about photography, fashion, modeling, etc... we connected on Facebook, kept in touch and will someday collaborate on a shoot...


...one of the grad-student assistant professors that she is friends with is getting married and said she doesn't want the typical wedding pose.. pose.. pose... pose... kind of photos. My acquaintance thought of me and asked if I would shoot the wedding before she suggested me to her friend.


I'm game.


Now I have to convince Morri... :)


Hey, it would be nice to actually get a paying gig out of the photography work, for me!

...I think I'm just going to start sending this contract company invoices and interest fees based on my schedule. When they ask for information, but don't return calls.. or emails... or any messages. Yet when I use their online invoicing system they don't let me process the invoice because they say paperwork is missing. Paperwork that has been submitted... and re-submitted... and re-submitted... and re-submitted again.


And then when I call to find out why they're not responding or processing the paperwork... I'm on hold... 20 minutes... 30 minutes... 40 minutes...


*yawn*


I have other things to do. The work got done, the paperwork was sent, you'll receive an invoice based on the date the work was done. If it isn't paid in 30, you'll get another invoice for late fees. If you don't like it, call me when it's a good time for me to discuss it.


I don't have time for this shit.

Just a few thoughts as the week winds down...


..my life would be made so much easier if any of the businesses I have to do business with did their jobs with a slight amount of consistency.


Like, FedEx for example. I can guarantee you, when they have something I need early in the day, they won't show up until very late. Wednesday they showed up at almost 7pm. Today, it's going on 4... still not here. I need what they're delivering and of course, I now have to step out of the office and I can't wait any longer.


Undoubtedly, they will show up right as I leave.

Morri was having some frustration yesterday and while she was writing checks her pen ceased writing. In a bit of frustration, she threw it and yelled, "You only have one job to do! F***ing do it!"


I can understand that completely. It is the way I have felt about most of my employees. For the most part, they have had one job. Only one job to do, yet most of them failed.


Pens or people, who can you rely on these days?


I am very happy and appreciative that I Morri and I found each other...

...Yeah... well, I'm old enough to remember the "before" MTV when HBO would play music videos and spoof-comedy as filler in between movies.


A lot of those early music videos, like everything by Styx for the Paradise Theater LP were played on HBO before MTV launched.


My brother and I would read the movie schedules, not to watch the movies, but to see when they ended in hopes that HBO would show music videos or parodies... this one was always one of my favorites:

Morri came up with the perfect domain name for our new project.


It's tough. So many good domain names out there have just been scooped up by hording companies so they can try and resell them at a profit later.


Domains are like internet real-estate. They're a valuable address or a place no one wants to go.


I think with this one, we're movin' on up to the condo in the sky.


Ain't that right, Weezy?
