Quote of the Day:  Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present. – Buddha

In other words, live in the moment. Not always an easy thing to do. However, it will give you a sense of peace, help you enjoy where you are and the people who are with you.

My little sister flew in from Portland, OR on Wednesday. As soon as I picked her up, we started visiting people and reconnecting. The most important part of life is people and relationships.

Kay showing Joy her fridge full of family photos.
The next day, lunch with old friends, creative spirits and colleagues at
Bugaboo Bay in Alexandria, MN.
A stop at Carlos Creek Winery to visit with another friend who brought gifts and ideas.
One book he gave me is Truth in Comedy. He’s been studying acting and theatre and emphasized that no matter what is going on in the scene, the most important thing is the relationship between the characters.
And, a stop at the Beilke farm for a delicious snack, a chance to share photos and stories, and time to look around.
We had one more stop at my friend’s house to drop off borrowed items from graduation, do a quick catch-up, and watch her grandson love up the farm kittens, nearly to death! Wow. Talk about tame kitties.
That’s all just the first 24 hours. I wonder what today will bring?
Go. Create. Inspire!
