Now

Now I’m…

  • waiting for 2024.
    – It’s been a hell of a 2023. I thought the Covid stuff was a challenge, but 2023 keeps throwing curveball after curveball. I know it can always be worse, but as some things are coming to a close, I am so looking forward to moving forward.
  • writing short stories.
    – I had an idea for a series of short stories since 2016. Thanks to NaNoWrimo, aka. National Novel Writing Month, I have started to write them. I’m not sure where this journey will end up, but it’s fun getting the stories out of my head.
  • thinking about Milo.

    – When you have a dog you know that final day will eventually come. For us, and our boy, Milo, that day came. He had 16 years and 9 months, but it was his time to find out what was one the other side. More stories will come, but right now there is a lot of remembering his “peculiarly” coolness as my nephew accurately described him.

This page is inspired by Derek Sivers. His “Now” project also harkens me back to the days of bulletin boards with footers of “I’m listening to:” and “I’m watching:, so …”

I’m listening to:
Margaret Rizza
II was introduced to Margaret Rizza and instantly drawn to the music. There is a mix of old school choral with a modern flare. It can be both meditative and help you focus on the task at hand at the same time.

I’m watching:
Yay, “For All Mankind” is back. As someone who wanted to be a fighter pilot and astronaut, I am jealous and praying some parts of that story come to pass in my lifetime.

I’m Andy Labis. The cute thing around my neck was our dog, Milo. I sing dorky songs to my wife each morning before I go to work, and then I post some of them on YouTube. I’m also a writer, photographer, and iPhone app developer. For good measure I’m a Controller for a company that does interior construction.

As many a life has done, mine has taken many twists and turns, but thankfully I’ve found a wonderful woman to share my life with. I also have been blessed to have various outlets to share things I enjoy.

Thank you for visiting and enjoy exploring my universe!
