My last blog entry about focusing was a several months ago. Maybe I focused too much and I had to look at my own blog to remember to enjoy some of the decadence. Of course I’ve done that before for my food blog as well. Forgot a recipe? Refer to my blog. I also recently reread that blog about how to effectively manage facebook, after I re-activated it. Facebook noise is again starting to drown out my own thoughts.
The past few months have been extremely busy with these ‘paths’: forming an LLC, some new networking opportunities to name a few. The new LLC, like anything is a great opportunity for creating: website, logo, business cards and LinkedIn account and a purpose. As a result, I have to continually remind myself to enjoy some of the decadence of life, whether nature, people, food, dogs, or whatever. I did manage this to some extent, but this blog reminds me to get back on that path. Internal brainstorming is exhausting. But during the weekends I do try to resume the decadence of what there is.
I still say walks and drives to unusual places are great ways to disconnect. They are great ways recharge an overwhelmed brain. It is not about functionality. Sure I can sit in my nice home and write and try to charge. But no, I always find writing in coffee shops more effective to clear my mind out. This is what I am doing today. I drove to a further location just to clear my mind. It worked. I am writing.
Although it is a cool weekend, I decided to enjoy the weather.
For some reason the stigma of a flower produces hope in one’s spirit, even if only while visible. A drive a to a nice park around here provides some great fresh air and a lot great visuals for one’s mind and soul.
I may not live by an ocean, but at least I can feel like it sometimes. I drove to a great port with some fun memories of an annual event. A lot of fresh air and blue sky helped.
Always the symbolism of the lone trees
A fun hangout by the port. While writing this, a very old song popped in my head, “The sailors say “Brandy, you’re a fine girl” (you’re a fine girl)
“What a good wife you would be” (such a fine girl)
“Yeah your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea” (note, they could, but won’t, not even in the song-reality).
Back to enjoying the decadence of my car…never fails
And more decadence of nature…lilacs. In my former house, I had lilac bushes, but I don’t right now. A spring has not commenced for me without literally inhaling the lilacs. So I drove about half an hour to massively inhale the lilacs.
Another lone tree, but this one is strong and well established.
More nature symbolism…sometimes beauty is in the oddest places, but does it survive?
And one of the finest and rarest forms of decadence, fine food made by some decadent and meaningful individuals.
More fine food that night.
So on Sunday, another week of focused chaos approaches. Occasionally, even I need to reread my blogs to focus on some enjoyment.
