It’s been a while since I’ve posted, so I thought I would start breaking myself back into the writing habit with a quick post. Today I dashed out for a walk when I realized that I would be staying for an evening meeting. I went for my loop around the local park which hasn’t been my routine for a while since I’ve been doing more of my walking at home. The usual soccer programs for little kids were in the center with various adults in the wings. Just seeing the kids at play brings a memory of that abandon so easily dropped out of life’s experience as an adult. Then as I finished my loop, a little dog was chasing a soccer ball most expertly bringing a grin to my face. I think it is important to do a check periodically to make sure simple joys are part of your life in some way. Both children and animals can help you remember, if you pay attention.
