Loads of things to do, must, MUST, M U S T !
I spent all my life with so many obligations (the regular stuff everybody knows so well), that I decided to untie myself.
No agenda, no watch, no tie, and most of the time no cellphone.
Today even the days of the week hardly influence my life.
yesterday, as promised, I drove Mario around in our area.
Mario, the son of our neighbors, is a brilliant priest who's now continuing his studying search for the ultimate truth, the one and only answer to the one and only real question of life.
He, like many others around us, hardly knows how very special our area is, how beautiful nature and how inspiring and inviting
to say STOP to all them obligations for just a moment or a day.
We had a fantastic day together, in which I had the pleasure to share those exquisite spots with him, making him my next victim
of this God given region.
I use the words "victim" and "God given area" with good reasons, as once you get to really know this area, you're addicted.
For him, hopping between Split, Rome and Germany for reasons of study and a load of obligations, I freed myself for a day to make him see, smell, feel, experience that we had (and have) a very good reason to feel blessed to be living our retired life here.
Many people run from one place to another (and so did I :-),
racing from one obligation to the next,
sometimes even forgetting they are on earth with a reason.
Sunday is a good day to reflect for a moment, preferably on one of those spots we've got so many of.
Any other day (not being a church going person myself) is fine as well, as long as it gives you the opportunity to untie yourself
of them DAMNED obligations.
Free yourself once in a while,
forgetting all those obligations for a moment.
Life is great !
And tomorrow it's back to "things to do" again,
as I am still tied to life like all of us,
but heaven can wait sometimes.
