someday



You're not going to be able to read every book that you want.

You'll never have time to watch all of your favorite shows.

The house will never be clean enough.

There will always be another errand to run.

The grass will continue to grow.

Everything you buy will need to be dusted, repaired, maintained or disposed of in some way.

This is not a critique of any lack of organizational skills on your part, or a reason to give up altogether. Rather, it's a statement of freedom.

When you know that life will still be waiting for you tomorrow--no matter what--it gives you the freedom to make today count as much as possible. "Someday" is right now. Anytime. And that can be exciting, if you let it.


Turning "Someday" into Today, by Mike Kramer, full article found here.

I love the excerpt by Mike Kramer. But what's the story with that picture? Is it one of your snaps, Susan?

The dust can wait but the redwoods can not.

jelly, not mine, but a great picture of the giant redwood trees in California, found on Webshots

These excerpts sound like retirement to me, when everything you consider work takes second place to whatever or wherever you want to go.
