Under construction: or why this blog is posted so late today

My wife has graciously volunteered to take my eye-popping photos for this blog. Thus, I am going to start having to write the posts in advance enough for her to have time to take photos for them! See you later (probably next week!)

You make me happy

Here are the lyrics for my new song, “you make me happy.” The chords are G, B, C throughout.

You make me happy,
Not because anything
That you say or do
And if it’s quite alright
I’d like to stay for a while, with you

My toes don’t much, mind the cold
But your feet next to mine, have such a hold
My hair don’t much mind growing old
But as long as your here, my heart’s growing bolder
To tell you always and tell you all the ways and tell you all your days

You make me happy,
Not because anything
That you say or do
And if it’s quite alright
I’d like to stay for a while, with you

Remember the time you smiled and said, “I got devices”
My pride was still sore, from falling on the ices,
You held my hand and helped me through the crisis
But my mouth was still burnin, cause your so good with spices
To tell you always and tell you all the ways and tell you all your days

You make me happy,
Not because anything
That you say or do
And if it’s quite alright
I’d like to stay for a while, with you

Take the next steps

When I was a sophomore in college, I went home for the holidays and like many sophomores, I was overwhelmed,

Overwhelmed by life.

Overwhelmed by school.

Overwhelmed by my lack of vision for my future.

I said as much to my dad and he told me…

“Really? You don’t know what you want to do with your life? That’s strange, because when I was your age I knew I was going to meet and marry your mom, move across the country and then work for the same company for 20 years. Come on, get it together!”

In his sarcastic way he was letting me know that it’s ok, just worry about the next couple of steps. Nobody can know what they are going to be doing forever. If the end isn’t clear, take the next couple of logical best steps. Later in life, the path will be more evident.
