Weathering the storm 

Hard to do on the beach of a salty ocean in Nova Scotia, if you’re an old fishing hut!

Atlantic Canada

Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. Yes the iconic red and white lighthouse is here. I thought I would share a shot that is equally representative of this popular tourist destination, just to be different!

Getting away

Tomorrow, I’m doing just that! I will be getting on a plane early in the day and traveling to a part of my country I have never seen. For an entire week I will be with friends I haven’t seen in a very long time too. Yes, I am very excited about my vacation!

For me though, there is a part of travel that is just as exciting as reaching your destination. And that is the anticipation of going away. Knowing that the time away is coming, that mental countdown you go through is one of the greatest small joys in life that you can have. It’s also the part of the trip that doesn’t cost anything!

Can’t wait to get there, can’t wait to go. It’s all good! Now…..I wonder…..which camera am I going to take?

Guard rails, speed bumps and yellow lines

These are are physical barriers designed for safety and controlling traffic flow. Typically, they are installed after a road is built. 

I wonder why some people choose to install similar types of barriers before relationships get built? When they do, it pretty much ensures they aren’t going to get very far very fast. It’s likely they may not ever reach their destination?

A seniors moment

I am not a senior. I have been told by many, that I don’t look my age and I don’t act my age, the latter I am quite proud of! 

At 62, I qualify for retail discounts pretty much everywhere but I don’t even think of taking advantage of the offers. And that’s my point, in my mind I am absolutely convinced that I am at least 10 years younger than I really am. It’s a belief that runs very deep. 

Demographic categories from Gen Y to Boomers are part of our language. I choose not to listen, says this stubborn old guy!

Success

If money is your measure of how successful you are in life, get a new ruler.

Speaking out

When you do, does that mean you should be negatively labeled as outspoken. I don’t think so!

Speaking up is okay too.

If you have something to say……say it.
