Every 3 Years

For the last three years I have been listening to the same song over and over. I like the song a lot, so I listen to it all the time. It’s a great song; I like the artist, I like the music, I like……..alright, I admit, I’m getting tired of it. But, I bought the song to listen to it and so I do.

For the last three years I have been watching the same movie over and over. I like the movie a lot, so I watch it all the time. It’s a great movie; I like the acting, I like the camera work, I like……alright, I admit, I’m getting tired of it. But, I bought the movie to watch it and so I do.

For the last three years I have been eating the same thing for breakfast day after day. I like what I’m eating a lot, so I eat it every breakfast. I like the flavor, I like the ingredients, I like……alright, I admit, I’m getting tired of it. But, I bought the food to eat it and so I do.

For the last three years I have been wearing the same style of cloths day after day. I like the cloth a lot, so I wear them. They are great cloth; I like the form, I like the material, I like……alright, I admit, I’m getting bored of wearing the same cloth. But, I bought the cloth to wear and so I do.

For the last three years I have been reading the same book over and over. I like the book a lot, so I read it again and again. It’s a great book. I like the writing style, I like the message, I like……alright, I admit, I could enjoy reading a new book. But, I bought the book to read it and so I do.

For the last three years I have been looking at the same artwork on my walls day after day. I like the artwork a lot, so it stays on my walls. They are great works of art; I like their colors, I like their moods, I like……alright, I admit, I’m getting tired of seeing the same art on my walls. But, I bought the art to hang on my walls and so it does.

Being a Dad Comes First

We are finally getting a bit of Snow here in southeastern, PA. I saw my daughter off to the school bus and was getting dressed for an outdoor excursion when the phone rang. “Mr. Grecian we’re calling to let you know there will be an early school dismissal at 12 noon”. What? I just got her on the bus! Well it’s a good thing they caught me when they did. Thing is, it wasn’t even snowing yet when they called. Oh well, they want to be safe, I’m cool with that.

Snow Flakes on Ice II knew I had a couple hours to work though, and so combined an errand with a quick stop to my favorite local park to see what the ice was Snow Flakes on Ice IIlooking like. About 20 minutes into my drive I began to notice snow flakes falling on my windshield. They were sharply defined and not melting (it was only 18 F).

When I finally made it to the park I had about an hour to work with but was able to make some images that are interesting. I would have liked to be out there all day, but I am a dad first.
