I woke up on Monday morning with thoughts of camping. I contemplated totally blowing off work, packing the car, loading it up with treats and hitting the open road. I wanted the peace, I wanted the quiet, I wanted the crisp fresh air of autumn. I picked a spot in my mind – on the banks of a stream and the edge of a dense forest, just close enough to smell the familiar wet, dense air but also far enough to catch the last of the sun’s heat. I pictured a day of hiking and canoeing, followed by huddling around a camp fire, warming our feet, enjoying dinner and wine and then being lulled to sleep by the sound of nature. And like the fool I am, I went to work instead!
Have you ever blown off work and done anything on a whim? Just lived in the moment?
