Just a simple blog about whatever I feel like talking about.
I always have such fun photographing the local plays and musicals.
Here is a shot from this years production of Annie.

You know life is a bit like these dipping sauces. You have more of the sweet and it takes less of the sour to leave a bitter taste. I thought the rich colors here said as much as any of my words might. Lately is seems like this is how my days are going, perfectly sweet when sweet and just enough bitter to leave a lasting impression. My family is doing good it’s the rest of the world I’m having issues with, I accept that people give me as that is who they are but I don’t have to like it. I have a memory of carrying Whitni over 5 miles up to Russian River falls when she was like 4 or 5 years old. It wasn’t easy but I love having that memory. Sweet sweet times, I have to make decisions daily that affect the business I run worth 800,000 dollars that other people have invested in me, also the lives and income of 3 other familys who work for me are at stake, somedays this is a bitter pill to swallow but that is where God has me. Now almost daily I enjoy going to work with the men there, we have good times. So in the end I guess my ramblings revolve around this picture, lotsa good sweet but definately has bitter aspects.
So today I realized a few things. Some people really do value my opinion on things. Not everything obviously, but there are areas I have some expertise in and it gets noticed. It is funny how sometimes people will listen with one ear and no intention of even considering changing their original plan. To tell someone you value their opinion and ask for it then not be able to even tell you back 1/2 of what you said to start with, well, those people are only being courteous, if you can call it that. I prefer the people who just do whatever they are going to do or ask you and actually consider what you have said. I ususally 99% of the time will not give advice just to hear my own voice. I have better things to do than that, I won’t give advice if I haven’t walked somewhere in that direction to start with.
