Approaching the Holidays

A man's as miserable as he thinks he is.  ~Seneca

We either make ourselves miserable or we make ourselves strong, the amount of work is the same. ~ Carlos Castaneda

One of the blessings of being me aside from having hair that grows like a weed is the ability to be completely at ease when alone.

Self contained...

Self entertained...

If left to my own devices, I'm a Ferdinand the Bull. Meandering... lolly-gagging... daydreaming... distracted... hypnotized by my own internal dialog...

Or hypnotized by the view of life through the lens of my camera.

Not a strategy, just a happy coincidence...

If I do pull my head out of the clouds or out from behind the camera, a good sized chunk of my brain is still running probabilities on the cost of barbecue sauce, pondering the truth behind living on a bayou, determining whether or not I need a new tree topper and deciding how many types of holiday cookies I should bake.

It makes for an interesting internal dialog!

With the holidays right around the corner, my internal dialog is centered around family, football, cookies and recharging my internal battery!

What's your internal dialog?

I've added a couple pictures to my opening photo album. I hope you like them!
