found this on an old multi-media cd that I made 10-12 years ago for a real estate company. I always liked to include a positive message of some kind. It's old but the advice still works.

It's called "25 Things you'll need to know after high school."

1. Don't sweat the small stuff, and remember, most stuff is small.
2. The most boring word in any language is "I."
3. Nobody is indispensable, especially you.
4. Life is full of surprises. Just say "never" and you'll see.
5. People are more important than things.
6. Persistence will get you almost anything eventually.
7. Nobody can make you happy. Most folks are about as happy as they
make up their minds to be.
8. There's so much bad in the best of us and so much good in the worst
of us that it doesn't behoove any of us to talk about the rest of us.
9. Live by what you trust, not by what you fear.
10. Character counts. Family matters.
11. Eating out with small children isn't worth it, even if someone else
is buying.
12. If you wait to have kids until you can afford them, you probably
never will.
13. Baby kittens don't begin to open their eyes for six weeks after
birth. Men generally take about 26 years.
14. The world would run a lot smoother if more men knew how to dance.
15. Television ruins more minds than drugs.
16. Sometimes there is more to gain in being wrong than right.
17. Life is so much simpler when you tell the truth.
18. People who do the world's real work don't usually wear neckties.
19. A good joke beats a pill for a lot of ailments.
20. There are no substitutes for fresh air, sunshine and exercise.
21. A smile is the cheapest way to improve your looks, even if your
teeth are crooked.
22. May you live life so there is standing room only at your funeral.
23. Mothers always know best, but sometimes fathers know, too.
24. Forgive yourself, your friends and your enemies. You're all only
human.
25. If you don't do anything else in life, love someone and let someone
love you.

An old fried chicken place just outside of downtown Orlando. I have always loved this sign all lit up at night. I seems to somehow be missing just the right number of bulbs to make it feel quaint, but not rundown.

Shot this one with a 1950's era Weltaflex Twin Lens Reflex #mediumformat camera. My friend had it in his garage for almost 20 years and it still works great. This fish chiminea shot was taken on #film that expired over ten years ago and I have kept in the refrigerator. You never know what you're going to get and that is half the fun.

Story
Tagline
Photographer, Writer, Journalist, Maverick, Rogue, Facilitator, Instigator, Entrepreneur, Provocateur, Idealist, Cool, Calm and Collected
Introduction
I personally hate labels, but here are a few that have been used to describe me at one point or another. Facilitator, Instigator, Rogue, Entrepreneur, Provocateur, Anarchist, Maverick, Speculator, Womanizer, Cultured, Enlightened, Part-time Philosopher and Curbside Prophet, as well as Father, Brother, Son, Husband, Marine, Surfer, Soccer player, Guitarist, Artist, Fisherman, Music Aficionado, Movie Buff (Old & New). I have an Eclectic taste, a biting sarcastic wit, a great sense of humor and a very low tolerence for "drama".

Living it one day at a time and trying not to take it too seriously. I have made, had and lost more money than I care to remember, so it simply can't be about money. I am on a quest to become the adult that I imagined I was going to be when I was 10 years old. I'm a little too old to actually become an international spy, but the rest of it is within reach.

I have always considered myself to be more of a
"Jack-Of-All-Trades, Master-of-Some", type of person. I know a little bit about a great many things and a great deal about a few things. Unfortunately, my skills are in the area of arcane, useless knowledge and are of benefit usually only during game shows and trivial pursuit. So, I continue to have to work for a living having failed to convert either of these two things into money-making enterprises.
