    Living one day at a time is the perfect plan, with less stress as its own reward. Planning anything more lengthy usually entails questions like: Can I afford the gas/lodging/food? How long does it take to get there and back? How many days can I/we stay? Is there a special event I’ve/we’ve committed to attend? Who’ll take care of the (lawn; pets; etc.)? These are just a few of the nerve-wracking considerations. Striking out for a close-to-home adventure early one morning (check for area events, parks, museums, a few days before and make a target list) allows you to have some control, spend less money, and enjoy a few unexpected delights. For me, driving 15 miles to the state park to enjoy the offerings of nature and the sound of waves lapping — or crashing — on the beach is a major delight and re-aligns my entire being with inner peace.

    I prefer being in an air conditioned library. Just that the walk to and from was very hot.

    Thinking back to my childhood: Baseball, riding my bike, swimming, vacation with my family, picnics, whole neighborhood hide and seek, collecting and cashing in pop bottles, mowing the grass, catching fireflies, listening to baseball on my transistor radio while falling to sleep.
