JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 04.28.18

JSP_Visual Week In Review_042718

Took another turn around the sun this week.

It was one of those birthdays that were big or pressing or important or life changing.

Just another notch in the tree of life. Another year of trying to do what a man’s gotta do, trying to do the right thing, be right to the people around you.

Keeping the creative juices flowing.

Doug Zambon, the lead singer of my favorite local band, The Vansaders, wrote a lyric: “I got some problems that I can’t solve/But I’ve got a fire that burns.”

Makes sense in a lot of ways. I guess you’re always trying to get better but sometimes you just have to live with the flaws.

On the flip side, though, there’s that fire: The one that keeps me reading and creating and trying to teach my kids.

And shooting new photos.

I swear my face has more wrinkles and lines on it.

Bob Dylan said “A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night and in between does what he wants to do.”

That was my birthday day on Wednesday. I took the day off, shot some pictures, worked out, went to a diner and had lunch with my wife, made a tasty dinner for the family, played basketball with my kids, and read some, watched baseball.

And had ice cream – Almond Coconut Delight.

Now I’m off for another trip around the sun.

Let’s see what this 48th year holds.

First up… a busy weekend. Much to share next week.

This Weeks Links:

What I Watched This Week: Kodachrome. Ugh. Unless you really love Ed Harris, I don’t recommend this one.

What’s better: To read the article it’s loosely based on.

What I’m Reading This Week: Down the River, Unto the Sea

The full spread of W. Eugene Smith’s Country Doctor. Amazing.

Good listen: The Water (Turn The World Around) by a neighbor of mine, Enoch Smith.

  1. Congrats on completing another orbit around the Sun. I hope you had a great celebration. I hope your orbit count keeps chasing mine for many, many years.
