Desktop Picture Purge – April 2020

Every so often I need to clean up my laptop desktop area. In doing so I tend to notice quite a bit has accumulated there. For your review and judgement, I present the most recent weeks worth of clutter. Enjoy. Stay safe out there.

Peace. <<04-22-2020>>

Covid-19 Timestop

So over the years of doing my blog, I have sometimes chirped in on trending topics or important occurrences. With the Election Year ‘lockdown’ of 2020 for the Corona virus, how could I not at least put down a bread crumb marker for later? Hopefully the events and tragedies surrounding this version of the virus (Covid-19) are a one-time, once in a lifetime happening. Obviously for those who lost their lives to the virus, it will be but for the rest of us let’s hope to never see this kind of sadness and selfishness again.

Halloween Costume 2019

What are you wearing?

Hmm. That came across a bit more creepy than I intended. I just meant, are you wearing a costume for the holiday? I did! See below!

And for giggles, here are some other Halloween costumes over the years. Try to guess the age and who I am just for fun!

Feel free to message me for feedback or if you think of a topic I should tackle!

Cheers! Peace.

Adulting with softball crossover (HIPPA release included)

Today marks 32 days since I had my ill-timed heart attack in Sherwood, Arkansas (is there really a good time to have a heart attack?). Furthermore, it has been thirty days from my hospital release date. In many ways it seems like a long time since then and in the same vein it feels like only yesterday. Sometimes, depending on how a fall asleep, I wake up and feel like the IV’s are still in the crook of each arm but then I move and the sensation dissipates. Starting with the moment I was lifted up into that ambulance, then continuing through coming back home and meeting with the local doctors (cardiologists, thyroid doctors, etc.), I have intently listened to what they have told me I need to do. In the context of their medical recommendations and strategies to put me on the path to returning to normalcy, I have also been doing some figurative cosmic math.

July 24th – A new post…post event

Hello!

I’ll let that sink in for a second. I said hello for the first time this month in blog form. For those who may not know, I suffered a heart attack on July 5, 2019 around the time of 8 pm CST. The event started to unfold towards the end of a tournament softball game being held at Dupree Park in Jacksonville, Arkansas under the Busch Classic banner.

Post Production

Hello all!

I know the title sounds like I am wrapping up a movie or an epic HBO series but in reality, I’m talking about the output (quantity) of posts for my blog. So far this year of 2019 I have produced 16 posts (not including this one). By comparison, last year in June alone I posted 14 times!

AM I LOSING MY DESIRE TO WRITE AND SHARE?! AM I?! Continue reading “Post Production”

What gets you excited?

america

Happy Friday! Today the calendar reads (not really, it’s an inanimate object after all) Friday, September 7th. On this date in history many, many things occurred! For instance, the city of Boston, Massachusetts was founded 388 years ago (1630). This is legit because Columbus quasi-discovered America in 1492 so it should be pretty accurate. According to the web, Interpol was formed in Vienna in 1923…kind of important. In 1979, the Entertain and Sports Programming Network (ESPN) makes its debut. Mark Whiten, of the St Louis Cardinals hits 4 homeruns and has 12 RBI’s in the second game of a double header in 1993. Sadly in 2011 a plane crashes in Russia killing 43 people aboard including the entire roster of the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl Kontinental Hockey League team.

Suicide Awareness

The year was 1986 and I was a 14 year old freshman in high school when I first tried to end my life…

Back in 1986 there was no Twitter, there was no Facebook and there was no Instagram or the plethora of other social media outlets to draw a ground swell of attention to social issues and topical relevant trending events. Back then 1 out of 1000 of the ‘happenings’ were reported and that was just typically on the nightly news. Oftentimes serious events or noteworthy occurrences in other states or worldwide took weeks to be reported and then it would be in periodical magazines or in the newspapers. Believe it or not, there were school shootings decades ago that happened…but there was no instant broadcast vehicle to relay the information around the globe. For those that have only existed in this instant gratification world of constantly evolving and morphing new age technologies, these concepts must be unfathomable.
