Good morning Friday

It’s a beautiful morning and yes thank God it is Friday.  You don’t have to look far to find beauty in this world.  Especially as the change of season is upon us.

There is nothing better than a calm lake and a cool reflection of the tree’s and the sky.  It makes you reflect on everything that is good in the world.  Take the time to enjoy a moment.

A swan is so graceful yet so very powerful.  Never mistake a swan’s beauty and grace as a symbol of weakness.  A swan is savvy, smart and strong

Look in a mirror and find yourself.  Find the good because it is there.

Do you see the fly on this Black-eyed Susan?  Wonder what that little thing is thinking right now?  I wonder what it’s searching for?  Do you think it will become someone’s lunch?

I love seeing the water in the morning but seeing it evaporate adds a completely different memorizing effect.  Nature’s beauty is everywhere.  You just have to look.

A Perfect reflection.  It’s art.

Do you think the swan recognizes his own reflection.

I need to bring a chair out here in the morning and work.  This is called work life balance.

About Adventures in the Burbs (72 Articles)
I'm now considered a survivor. A survivor of what you may ask? For my entire life I have been a walking time bomb due to a visitor embedded in my brain called an AVM, or an Arteriovenous Malformation. I never actually knew I had it. My story of survival is so improbably and spectacular that it is worthy of an entire book in itself. I may have a post in here somewhere on my blog that covers it. In the end I’ve survived a brain hemorrhage, brain surgery and I’ve been left with Epilepsy and Left Side Neglect. Believe it or not, Left Side Neglect has been nothing less than a fascinating experience although I don’t recommend it for the feeble or weak minded. In the end that time bomb exploded yet I’m still here to put my adventures up on this blog and I will never let my survivor experience hold me back from life. Although I’m now considered a “Survivor”, throughout life I have been many things and it seems I have assumed many different identities along the way. For me life has been a zigzagging adventure woven with change and that change has always been good. I’m truly blessed as my life has been nothing short of amazing and my cup has always been overflowing even in the worst of times. I’ve had a good family, good friends, excellent mentors along the way and an amazing wife. Wonder if she will actually ever read this?? I’ve been a musician, a dishwasher, a pizza maker, a break-dancer, a skateboarder, a long haired metal head, a United States Marine, a husband, a father to many, a technologist, a college student, an adventure racer, a businessman, a manager, a leader, a crisis manager, a Harley Davidson enthusiast, a wannabe bourbon connoisseur, an amateur RV’er, an amateur blogger, an amateur writer, an amateur photographer, a thinker, a doer, a traveler, a wannabe digital nomad, an adventurer, and a remote worker. So as you can see I’ve maintained just a few identities….but what’s in an identity anyway. I know my identity as a “survivor” will not sum up my existence nor define me as a person. My name is Will and I am all of those identities listed above and then some. Hopefully you will join me on my journey. Do take Care, Will
