"How are you doing?"
"Oh busy, real busy"
This is a very common way we begin a conversation with some one. It is almost like we are telling each other that we are good because we have all this stuff going on in our life. It makes me wonder if we really are good or if we are just filling our lives with stuff like we do our closets and basements.
Some times I say to Brenda that I am not going to try do "get things accomplished today". I say "I am just going to enjoy this day." Those days often end up not only some of my best days but ironically I do a bunch of stuff that all feels more like goofing around than anything close to work. Some times I just long for those days with big open spaces to drift off into day dreams.
