So where did the summer go? It seems like I ask myself this around the same time each year, right about now when school is back in session. I also ask why I haven't been to the beach yet? Luckily for me, summer never quite ends when you live in Southern California. I'm not trying to brag, it's just how it is (and my taxes will tell you so). What I'm really trying to say is time truly feels like it speeds up the older you get and some days you need everything to slow down so you can fit in all the calls, meetings, projects or even that quick visit to the beach. I mean, just look at the last time I posted a blog. My goal was to post at least once per day this year. Obviously, I'm going to miss that goal, but it's okay. I'm letting it go. Maybe some of my other goals were more important or I simply wasn't inspired to post anything. You just gotta go with flow and that's exactly what I did last weekend. I spent an incredibly relaxing Labor Day holiday with friends in Anchor Bay up in Mendocino County where time actually stood still for a few marvelous days. I took advantage and let myself do pretty much next to nothing and it felt great! Okay, except for some extreme croquet playing. Yes extreme (think hills and rock obstructions). Thank God for that maximum of 10 hits per wicket rule or I really would have come in last place... or did I? I don't know, who cares, I let that go too. Bottom line, I took advantage of letting go, doing nothing and just being. Being in the moment and enjoying every second, something I haven't done in a long time without a list of to-do's close by. Thank you Anchor Bay, for letting the time slow. I'll be back soon again... but with a super-duper mallet in hand!
