It’s a continuum.
Work. Work. Work. Life?
We miss our children’s first day at school, a day whose memories we can never fabricate. Life?
We miss our children’s prize giving days. Life?
We don’t notice the beauty of the rising sun. Life?
We’ve forgotten the smell of newly mown grass. Life?
We have become immune to the excitement the songs of the crickets brought to our ears as kids.
Anna Quindlen advises in her book, SHORT GUIDE TO A HAPPY LIFE, “Get a life in which you notice the smell of salt water pushing itself on a breeze over the dunes.” You know what to do!
