Plaid shirts and puffy vests

People are amazing. Each and every one of us on this earth is a story. That’s billions of books just scattered all over the world. It’s really too bad that so many of us judge and are judged by our covers.

You know who I envy? Those old ladies and gents in their beat up RVs, or long haul trucks who travel together. Their puffy vests and plaid shirts, and well worn boots. I bet they have led an interesting life.

This Thanksgiving weekend, I’m thankful for the ordinary.

Thankful.

If I were to sit here and list everything that I was thankful for in my life it would take me a really long time. Perhaps that’s it though, people don’t take the time to appreciate things. I’ll start an un-justified list, meaning I’ll just say simply what it is and not explain it.

Mom and Dad.
My best friends.
Having a roof over my head.
My health.
Clean air.
Food.
The night sky.
Sound mind.
The internet.

Haha. There’s obviously so much more to this list, I didn’t want to go into specifics or get too materialistic. But I am thankful for all of those things, and I’m thankful for them every single day & not just the second Monday in October.

In other news, I spent my weekend filming the Trapline Marathon for work. What a rush that was! I was so impressed by all the runners, especially two in particular. There was an 8 yo running with who I can only assume to be his dad, he ran the 10k and killed it! And then there was Michal Kapral, the ‘joggler’. He holds the¬†Guinness¬†World Record title for fastest marathon while juggling three balls. That was a sight to see!

My morning on Sunday started at 6 a.m. and lasted until about 2. And then from 6 to 9 at night. After that was all over, I felt I really needed to wind down so my friend Doug and I took a drive to the dock and C-Side and guess what I got? Obviously some night photos. Here they are.
