My mind is devoid of creativity today so I'm going to post some photos from the weekend. I won't be going out for three more weeks because of Sea School. Maybe I'll be able to get out during the week. I'm unsure about that at the moment because I don't know whether there will be homework to do during the week.
I'm going to see this through with Sea School, although at the moment the last thing I want to do is be in a classroom situation all day for three weekends. I've gotten spoiled with all the free time since retiring. And I enjoy not having a schedule to adhere to. People tell me that I'm living the dream life. It feels good to me. I've worked at some job or been in school for so long. Now I'm enjoying freedom from the clock and filling my days with what I want to do. It's not a dream anymore but the reality of my life.

And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered. But most of all, I learned that life is about sitting on benches next to ancient creeks with my hand on her knee and sometimes, on good days, for falling in love. — Nicholas Sparks
