I just stumbled upon some really cool people. They call themselves Dharma Bums. They are retired and live in the Pacific Northwest. God, I've got to get out to that part of the country one day. The photos I've seen people post on their blogs who live in that neck of the woods are just unbelievably beautiful.
The Dharma Bums live life with eyes wide open with camera in hand.
And write things like:
On a sunny day like today, I admit it, my teenager-high-school hooky-playing self takes over, and I coax him a way from his mission. "Let's go for a walk," I say, "I'll even drive to our favorite place." He's my hooky-playing soulmate, so we go.
Everyone should have a hooky-playing soulmate. If you've got one, you're so lucky. You've struck gold, my friend! And if you don't have one, I hope you meet one in the new year.
Big thanks to Dharma Bums for the most excellent Time cover. My heart is full at such a thought.
