    DO: sleep in Sometimes you just need to sleep in and not feel an ounce of guilt about it. Life is go go go, and there are ten million things you want to do. It’s easy to forget how exhausted you are sometimes. Or maybe you take note, but that doesn’t stop you from packing (…) Read more »

    DO: get out and enjoy the colors of fall. Last weekend a friend took me on a three hour motorcycle ride through the countryside. We stopped a couple of times to check out a covered bridge or run through a field, but what filled me with the most joy were the endless views of fall. (…) Read more »

    DO: send somebody a handwritten letter. I know that sending somebody a handwritten letter might sound like a cliché DO, but it really is one of those special things in life. There’s nothing like receiving a letter in the mail that somebody took the time to write and send you. It’s such a heart-felt gesture. (…) Read more »

    DO: observe the stories around you. Everyone is someone, and everything has a story. I love stories. Stories fuel the imagination and fill the soul with emotion. We read books and watch movies, falling in love with the tales of other’s lives, but the real world never seems to have the same luster. Maybe, if (…) Read more »

    DO: go to bed an hour early and read. I have two problems: 1) I never seem to get enough sleep, and 2) I never have enough time to read as much as I’d like. Rather than continue letting this bother me, I’ve begun a little experiment. An hour earlier than I typically would, I (…) Read more »

I’d love to escape to his oasis for a bit and participate in one of his wet plate workshops. It’s so interesting how the space we inhabit really becomes (…) Read more »

    DO:one thing at a time. I recently read, My Life as an Experiment, by A.J. Jacobs. Each chapter explores a new lifestyle experiment, and there was one in particular – “The Unitasker” – which made a significant impact on my thinking. In this chapter, Jacobs makes a commitment to do only one thing at a (…) Read more »
