Just a few weeks ago I would spend my lunch break walking in the warm sun and enjoying the pretty colors. Today the sky was overcast, the colors were almost gone, and by the time I finished my walk my fingers were cold. But the scenery was wonderful.
When you walk you see things that would be missed when driving by, like a bird nest in a small tree or leaves lying at the bottom of the pond.
So far it’s been a good life. I’ve lived in both rural and metro areas, waited tables and reviewed chromatograms, rounded up loose sheep and spent beautiful summer evenings at concerts in Central Park. I’ve painted a house, kissed the Blarney stone, and pushed a lawn mower with a baby on my back. Currently I’m working 9 to 5, going to the gym, sneaking a donut, a good book, or a visit with my grown sons when I can. Where do I go from here? I'd like a small house with enough land to homestead.
