Autumn? Pre-viewing. Sweater time. Planning a road-trip – loop around – Idaho, Bandon Dunes, Vancouver and back …
Summer? Many golf gamesskewered by rain or by knee/ankle trouble days. Hot summer romance? Nope (was I looking hard enough?).
Tried some adjustments …
My history: lists, piles, diaries, priority setting. Focus on important – don’t confuse short-term urgency/emergencies with long-term value. Juggle all. Fit in leisure, play – not after-thought. Too often, as last thought.
I really tried reversal. Things worked out about the same. If I’d gone away I would have used those rainy and lame days differently. Instead of working I’d have played. I’d have walked in the rain more, seen more movies, read more books, seen sites …
Meanwhile – plenty to do (new projects, new clients, old stuff too) – it’s a labour day.

morning walk: 6C/43F, calm, drizzle paused, Gusta’s paws are soggy just the same – we did a long walk at 6AM, loved the freshness, loved the quiet – loved the coyote squeals in the distance
The rain cleansed Kootenay mountain air may have something to do with my state of mind this morning but I think today's effort has cracked the top five Kolke contributions to my continuing efforts to attain amused enlightenment. And the answer is gravity, my friend. I don't understand the word but I know it gets us all, RH, Calgary, AB
Interesting subject! I had to make a coffee and read it a second time - do you just wake up with these deep thoughts (lol)? , DM, Calgary, AB
What a great writing for a dreary, rainy, cold Sunday morning! ?...and I giggled at the last comment. Thanks, DG, Edmonton, AB
