That's What It's All About
Vacationing is partly responsible for my overall elation no doubt but this is not to be confused with roaming like a mindless tourist among the crowd. I've been slacking alone mostly, blending effortlessly with my environment, living my days to the fullest from sunrise to sunset, rising with the birds, strolling in the woods, riding my motorcycle on country roads, skimming the top of fluffy clouds, enjoying the company of old friends, seeing my own reflection in the eyes of the most beautiful of women then falling asleep with the advent of night. I've been here and there but in fact nowhere. This voyage took me furthest away from my own backyard yet I'm at home.
For those dear friends who wrote, worried about my well-being, asking if everything was alright, I have only this to say: I've never been better, more fulfilled, more un-needing of anything than I am right now.
Some are driven by an ambition to improve their future while others by unattainable yearnings. Very few can look back and honestly say, to themselves before others, we've lived our dreams and we're conjuring more.
I knew it all along but now I get to say it at last: that's what it's all about... Life!
