You know what's great about not having a job?
At 4:00 p.m. on a Monday you can build a fire in the backyard fire pit because you don't really have anything else to do.
OK. You probably have laundry. You probably have an attic full of unneeded, unnecessary stuff collected over twenty years that you should be sorting through.
Or leaves that need to be raked. Or a house that needs to be painted.
Let's face it. You are not going to do those things. Not when you have the opportunity to sit in a comfy chair and stare at the flames.
Part of the reason I'm lounging in this comfy chair and staring at the flames is because I taught two yoga classes this morning in two hours and I have not done any yoga in weeks.
So there's a little bit of discomfort and pain going on. Not a lot. Just enough to feel satisfied as I sink back into the papasan and take a little nap.
