I found a few really cool videos on Youtube yesterday. I’m going to post them for you below, but first, I want to encourage you to watch them. Don’t just look at the pictures of them below – take a few minutes and watch them. While you’re in the bathroom. After your wife or husband falls asleep. You don’t need to be an “approaching 40 year old male who always wanted to do something like this but just haven’t gotten around to it” kind of person. I think the message Billy Reeder is putting out there transcends to all of us. And if you’re interested in more of what this brilliant man wants to say, check out his website.
I wrote a post a long time ago that basically asked the question, “If not now, then when?” I was talking about all the things we, as friends, talk about. All the things we tell ourselves we wish we were doing. The lives we think we should be living. Since we’ve arrived in Maine, I’ve told Laura more than once, “I’ll do this as long as I can get away with it. I’m not getting any younger.” And it’s true. I’ve been saying that my goal is to “get away from it all” for years. Too many years, if you ask me. Probably back well into the 90s. It took me all this time to hopefully get it right. And if you really want to be blown away, be sure to watch the second video. I think you’ll like it.
