An Old Fashioned Vacation

Good Morning, God!

The World is so FULL of wonderful things that noticing is a full-time job. I suppose that is part of what I love about photography — training the Eye to See and Appreciate .

Right now Kit and I are in the Hassayampa Inn in downtown Prescott, Arizona. That’s because Sandy is busy with her intensive ESL course. Dave is busy arranging funding for his consulting business. Ian is busy with his video mash-ups. And Mark is away at band camp.

So after a lovely Family Visit, Kit and I are now having a Vacation. Not a Marathon Trip. Not a Grand Circle Tour. Just an old fashioned vacation — getting up late and walking around investigating a new place. It is a sort of Not-Home-Alone-Together time. Precious!

And, as always, God, it fills me with a desire to DO LESS! To spend more time with Kit — enjoying his company. Of course, he will have to be less busy, too.

Ah, BUSY. Such a vital part of growing up and finding our who we are — or might be. But, so different from Simple Mindfulness.

And speaking of that, God, now it is time for me to stop the busy-ness of blogging and go off with Kit for breakfast. But first he has to edit this!

Thank You, God, for Slow Days — Days to BE and BE WITH!
