Man & Dog At Home Outside The Home – IMRAN™

I went into the water as I flew the DJI Phantom 4 overhead for a moody dusk sunset livestream. I captured a few photos of us from different angles. This was stitched from 3 separate photos. Can you see Kennedy and me?

What a joy to be able to see this photo and bow my head in gratitude at what I am blessed to call home on Tampa Bay, in Apollo Beach, Florida. Kennedy and I went into the water as I flew the DJI Phantom 4 overhead for a moody dusk sunset livestream. I captured a few photos of us from different angles. This was stitched from 3 separate photos. Can you see Kennedy and me?

Come, my loves, be mine, at sunset, where fantasy becomes reality, and reality becomes you, and you become mine.

Lovers Cry Out In Unison At Dusk, As Pelican At Singing Sunset Hovers Like Humming Birds – IMRAN™

Sunsets sometimes sing silently, as flapping pelicans in a chorus hover across the crescendos of red and gold clouds,. The dusk settles into its gentle chorus, singing a sweet lullaby of love and passion, odes to dreams and desires, unloading beams of lights and hard shafts of shadows, as the sultry night serenades the hot sun, and the wetness of Tampa Bay is coated in the hues of solitude, soaking in the whiteness of life into the blend of ecstasy, Come, my loves, be mine, at sunset, where fantasy becomes reality, and reality becomes you, and you become mine.

Piece Of Fish & Peace On Earth – IMRAN™

flic.kr/p/2dLRdSc

They talk about breaking bread to get closer to people. I’m just a big fan of bread, except a few types, like Naan, Poori, some Parathaa, croissants, and such. But I’m more than happy to partake in a meal that’s got no bread, but plenty to munch on. In this case, what better way to mark a wish for peace on earth than by having pieces of fish from the ocean. A Muslim American, out feeling alive racing my motorcycle in the dead of winter, on the eve of a holiday important to Christians, having a traditional meal of Buddhist and other-religion celebrating nations. Enjoy the 3D View that almost makes you want to grab a piece. Peace!

A quick spin on the jet ski as I was coming back home from a great time and ride out to beer can Island.

I hope you all had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving with your family and loved ones. I was blessed enough to spend it at my blessed home in Apollo Beach, Florida. After nearly 6 or more weeks I was able to make time to get out on the water and enjoy the absolutely perfect boating weather that Tampa Bay offers almost year-round. This is just a quick spin on the jet ski as I was coming back home from a great time and ride out to beer can Island.

My Boat Slip, A Sailboat & Stunning Sunset Skies At Long Island Home Marina – IMRAN™

…stunning shades of dusk and magical clouds against the beautiful boating scene…

Walking back home from the beach, after yesterday’s gorgeous sunset livestream, I took the longer part of the boardwalk back home.

This way I could catch the stunning shades of dusk and magical clouds against the beautiful boating scene at my boat slip.

My neighbor’s sailboat enhanced the view.

On Procrastination, 24+ Hours Awake Binges & TGIF Inspiration – IMRAN™

Forget doing better tomorrow.. Make the rest of today, make the rest of this hour, even make this minute, a better use of time than the previous.

One of my worst weaknesses (yes, shocking that I have even one, right? LOL) all my life has been procrasti….. wait a second, let me install this hot new software first… OK… I am back… yes, as I was saying… procrastination. I am kidding about installing the software (or am I ? LOL).. but you get the idea.

The one flaw of my many which has let me… or, I should say, that I have let keep me from doing all that I need, want, aim, dream and hope to achieve in my life. I have probably only hit 1-2% of all that God gave my potential for, and it is a crying shame that it is so little because of the one weakness which I allow to get the better of me.

One way I have compensated for the many days of my life I was not productive is doing things in binges… Just like watching Netflix‘s The House Of Cards 13 episodes per season within 2-3 nights, I will sometimes go 24-36 hours on a productivity binge.

That is what I ended up doing last night when I took this selfie this morning. As Friday dawns over the Great South Bay outside my windows at home on Long Island, with merely 2 weeks left in what was one of the fastest flying years I can remember, I am taking time to reflect.

The good thing on such 24-36 hour days is that I will get a lot done, but the down side is that each time, each darn time, I kick myself about how this or that could have been done weeks, or even months ago. And, as many of you are all too familiar, I am sure, you too end up swearing off procrastination, “Never Again!” Until, of course, we do it the very next day or week.

We may not always overcome every weakness, but at least committing to fight it is a step forward. Not just a promise to make in new year’s resolutions, not just in promising ourselves to try to make tomorrow better, but to doing it Now!… Forget doing better tomorrow.. Make the rest of today, make the rest of this hour, even make this minute, a better use of time than the previous.

That is a fresh start without having to wait for a new year… That is a chance to begin anew even as our lives hurtle towards an end we all will reach sooner or later. No matter what time is left available to use, let us promise to make better use of it.

May God give us the strength to overcome our weaknesses and the tenderness to forgive ourselves and others for what we fail to achieve due to them. As long as we promise “I can and will do better” … we will!
