As always its the simple things that make the difference, and so it was this weekend. Ok, itâ€™s not a campfire, but one of those fire-pit thingies that you can set up on the patio. Itâ€™s been an incredible month since weâ€™ve moved to our place just out of town, and weâ€™re beginning to settle into a relaxing routine.
Amy, Brianna and I are enjoying the stars in the sky, and the crickets in the yard. Watching the fire flickering away and playing â€œ20 questionsâ€ to pass some time. Its been awhile since weâ€™ve had some quite time like this, and its nice to have it right in the backyard instead of several hours drive away.
Thereâ€™s a lot of writing I do that never makes it anywhere. Sometimes I think make a mistake in not publishing more posts when the muse strikes. Like tonight. Thereâ€™s a lot of things that come to mind and, for once, Iâ€™m not going to talk business, or strategy or ideas around any of it.
Instead, itâ€™s really about the simple things in life. Family, quite time, a flickering fire, and getting a chance to listen to it all.
Oh, and an the occasional shooting star doesnâ€™t hurt too much either.
So, for all of us rushing through our days and weeks. Please donâ€™t forget to take a day, an afternoon, or an evening, and sit down with family or friends. Or simply take time for yourself and relax. A few hours can make all the difference and is the recharge we all can make use of in our busy lives.
