To me, this picture captures that wonderful unfettered feeling of freedom:  the freedom of possibility, the freedom of creativity.  I imagine myself inside the VW van, humming along on the highway.  It’s warm outside, not hot hot, and the windows are down; Janis Joplin’s great whiskey voice is singing, “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose. . .”
Today when I see those VW wagons driving down the highway, I am instantly reminded of my childhood in the 1960’s and the sometimes excellent adventures of being a teenager.  It was a lot fun but I don’t think I want to go back and relive those times.  Maybe you feel differently about the times of your childhood. . .
As I have grown older, I have noticed that I have a very different viewpoint about the passage of time.  I am now conscious that every day is truly an opportunity to try to do something  a little differently or work on something about yourself that you are trying to improve.  It can be something small — such as adding another minute to your exercises or not cursing for 24 hours (that would be me) — or something big like calling someone you haven’t talked to in a long time or visiting an ill person who may be in the hospital.

Either way, it’s your day.

Grab it and go!!!!!!!
