It's All Good

How do you like my first photo with my new iPhone?  Amazing!  

I have one of those $1,000 Cannon SLR cameras but I never use it now.  It is so much more convenient to use my iPhone camera.  No more bulky camera hanging around my neck, intimidating people worried that I'm going to take their picture.  Now I have my handy camera/iPhone in my right pocket.  And, I can also take videos, which I do almost every chance I get.  

Life is good now folks.  Of course it could end in an instant (of which I am all too aware) but for now, I am at the best place in my life.

No immediate health issues other than creeping arthritis and my face falling apart.

Bill and I are entering our 53rd year living together and we love each other more than ever.  

I have several very good friends who accept me as I am, warts (and falling face) and all.

I have a good job which supplements my fixed retirement income and keeps me engaged. 

I live in a fabulous part of the country, southern Delaware which has mild weather and minimal homophobia. No weird stares from fellow patrons at Lowe's when Bill and I shop there.  

Is life perfect?  Of course not but folks, this is as good as it gets.  And in a couple of weeks this election will be over (thank God).

And of course I have my new iPhone.  

It's all good folks.  Have a great day!

    1. Jimmy,
      I know indeed that I am very lucky. So many paths I could have taken in the past that would have led me down a wrong road. I lucked out for sure.

  2. It's a beauty of a shot, Ron - reflecting your post which is realistic yet brimming with contentment (I nearly said the contentment of a saint, but let's not). An example for us all to strive towards.

    1. Ray,
      From humble beginnings and a lot of speed bumps, I have had a good life and am fortunate enough to continue to have a good life in spite of my failing body. We all turn to dust in the end however I hope I have a few more good years left.

  3. Ron - I agree totally. Life is good - and we live in a part of the world that offers us so much and we are so free of massive upheavals that go on in other parts of the world. And you have a great appreciation of what you have.

    1. Thank you Linda! I surly do appreciate life and everything it offers. The bad stuff? That's just a challenge and isn't that what life is all about anyway? I will keep blogging as long as I can. My life would not be the same without out it and I would miss all the friends I have made through blogging.
      Have a great day!
