Uh, yes, please. We need more of this sitting in front of cafe energy.
More loafing at lunch.
More wasting the afternoon in airports lost in thought and leisure.
More going for six-mile walks down the beach.
See, I have a sense that, if we wanted, life could be a lot more simple and cheap than we think.
Libraries are free, walks are free, swimming in the ocean is free, bird watching is free, people watching is free, and spending the afternoon in a cafe with free refills might cost as little as a few dollars.
Good grief, the best evening I had all week was last night. And do you know what I did?
I sat in a lawn chair in my driveway for over an hour during sunset. I smiled at people as they walked or drove by, I watched the birds come and go, I listened to the leaves dance in the wind, and I enjoyed the last wisps of the day’s light before they were gone forever.
Avoid that Friday conference call if you can.
And let’s do more of this 👇
