Parenthood

Parenthood isn’t easy. Watching these three yesterday made me think of the responsibility we as parents have to our children. Not an easy task being someone’s parent, that is, when you are fully in. It takes a ton of sacrifice, patients, understanding…it’s never ending and yet simultaneously, it is possibly the most rewarding thing I have ever done and continue to do.

This doe is drained: nutritionally caring for these two fawns has taken its toll on her, but she will rebound. As I lay here on the couch this morning staring out of the glass then back at these pics I am reminded at how blessed I am to be the father of two. A tough job, absolutely, even tougher to do it right. And then you hope and pray they become good people. I am blessed that mine are indeed good people, kind people, caring individuals, a great feeling to have as I lay here on Fathers Day and understand I have indeed been blessed with becoming a dad. Happy Parents Day, Happy Fathers Day! Have a great day!

Disconnecting to Connect

Disconnecting to connect today. I do it often. I need to do it often! Too much anger and hatred happening in the world these days. I shut off the TV, very little personal social media, not watching the videos, not getting sucked into the vortex of negativity…I know what’s happening on the streets…I’m out there on the streets often…I see everything…I’m not ignoring what’s real…I know exactly what’s up… and the only way it’s going to change is if we stop the hate and respect each other…and we need to pray on it as well!

Cat Daddy

We have a ritual every morning, the cats and I. I wake up, they do as well, I go to the bathroom, they do as well, I go into the living room, they do as well, they wrestle, then eventually I do as well, we all crash out together… this is everyday…and I’m not complaining one bit. Love these critters!

Heck of a Show…

Heck of a show in the sky every night on my balcony…always the same channel…

Very thankful to be mindful enough to be thankful for everything…if that makes any sense…

Have a great night!

3 am…An Incredible View!

I have been getting up early for the last week. My cat wants to hang out with me at three am, like clockwork.

He’s a rescue, one of two, definitely a unique personality, but we love them both.

I remember getting up, petting him, grabbing my camera and heading out to the balcony and shooting skyward…

Checking the shots the next morning…I was rewarded with this one…I thanked the cat!

Photography to me is an incredible tool for stress relief, a form of therapy if you will, I go out and concentrate on finding a subject to photograph and then talk about and share.

Thank you for stopping by. Check out the podcast if you would. Have a great day!

69: All We Need Is Love

Contraband Slim has dedicated his life to spreading positivity and love towards anyone he meets. His sincerity and determination to spread love towards others has motivated me to share this message of positivity with you, and hopefully in return, you will share it as well.

Please give a listen here…

All We Need Is Love

HUG SOMEBODY!

I am not going to post a new podcast this week. Instead I would like to share a show I did about a month ago that is certainly worth repeating. It was called ‘Hug Somebody!’

It is roughly seven minutes long, and the message is quite clear!

We need less hatred, anger, and violence and more, much more, peace, love, and understanding towards our fellow human beings.

Please feel free to share this message with those you love and care about!

It starts with us!

Thank you

Tony

Hug Somebody

Looking quiet up there..

So much happening today in the city. Rioting, looting, doesn’t appear to be getting better. Prayers to all.
