Slow, lazy weekends â€“ thatâ€™s what we all need from time to time, and thatâ€™s what Iâ€™m doing today on the patio overlooking the St. Croix river. Problems and issues of the world are removed and the simple sounds of life on the river replace the hectic hubbub of modern life that I return to tomorrow.
It sometimes seems so hard to get away and relax, that I often forget the view right outside the door. Iâ€™m terrible that way â€“ I love the Northwood’s of Wisconsin and Minnesota, and my family gets away to them whenever we can. However, we choose this place on the edge of Minneapolis & St Paul so we could enjoy the view. A shame when we donâ€™t make use of it.
Itâ€™s also a fine day to get caught up with some thinking, and get started on much needed writing as well. Something that Iâ€™ve been neglecting of late. The stress of work and the long hours involved have kept me from pursuing my agenda as much as I would like. So today is a day (afternoon really) to sit here in the autumn breeze and watch the river flow past.
So I thought Iâ€™d share the view â€“ a couple quick snaps with my aging T-Mobile MDA (Windows Mobile), that doesnâ€™t quite live up to modern digi-cam phones. But stillâ€¦
Anyway, I hope youâ€™re having a great autumn day as well, no matter where or what you happen to be doing.
