If you could wake up with all the willpower and resources at your disposal, what would the perfect day look like?
For me, it would be all about simplicity. I would like to wake up in a small cabin in the high desert region of Eastern Oregon. Make a pot of coffee on an outside fire pit. Do some Tai Chi stretches between a couple pine trees. I can see myself maintaining a beehive or two. I might take a long walk through the sagebrush with my dog for a little exercise - perhaps climb to the top of a high point and look out into the horizon. Breathe. Meditate. And repeat for an entire month if ever possible. No internet. No demands from friends, family, or society. Just a little quiet time. A simple opportunity to find a signal among all the noise in my head.
Wow, to me it sounds like a wonderful Day! I am shocked at people who are horrified at the thought of not having their phone. My perfect day would be similar. I would have a backpack and my hammock so I could move around and sleep at different places in a forest. Getting out of my hammock I would explore the surrounding land. I'd watch wildlife but I'd also gather wild edibles and other things for food. At the end of the day, I'd enjoy a good book by the open fire. I've done this before and being alone with your thoughts is the best way to learn about yourself and being in nature is the best way to learn about the world we live in.
I went to the Bahamas alone many years ago, the only solo trip I've ever taken. It was one of the best moves I ever made for self-discovery and introspection. Sitting by the ocean reading the book, " Gift From the Sea" . . . priceless.
I'm sure you know I'm referring to a backpacking hammock and not something found in a person's backyard. A backpacking hammock is put in a backpack and then hung between two trees using tree hugger straps when being used. With an air mattress placed on it, I find it as comfortable as any bed. Here are some of the most popular ones.
Spent many a day, in my youth, in the Blue's of Eastern Oregon. The wilderness area around Wallowa, the mountains between Pendleton and Baker City. Got a little hungry a couple of times when the fish weren't biting, but never got tired of it.
Me neither. It's just an incredible little chunk of the earth down there. There's something about the landscape that is hypnotizing to me. I think I might take a trip down to Bend in July then go visit Crater Lake on my way to Klamath Falls.
To be a VIP tourist with unlimited funds on an alien planet with an advanced civilization, a benign society, and who have a strong interest in Earth being one of their trading partners.
Ah. Interstellar commerce. And would there be any particular product or resource that you would be willing to invest in or profit from?
With VIP status and unlimited funds, I'm not sure I could make a decision haha. Choice paralysis.
Why make a choice? Take it all. Just like Google.
What does one do once one has it all? lol
Start solving all our problems that are being caused by the simple lack of money.
There was a good comment here a minute ago. Wonder what happened to it...
Sounds picture perfect. Couldnt have said it better myself.
I'd love to stay in 75-degree, sunny weather, in a cabin or bed-n-breakfast surrounded by nature, near a lake, for at least four days (one day would not be enough). I say bed-n-breakfast so someone can cook for me. My daily activities would include photographing nature, looking at the lake, practicing tai chi, reading and completing a book, taking naps. I would have my phone but check it less often/turn it off. No phone calls.
Just realized this is completely doable. Need to make #SelfCare and #SelfIndulgence a priority.
Yeah I think there are different ideal days. There are ideal days where I wish I could get everything done and go to bed not worrying about having forgotten something or half-assed something. I'm constantly fighting with myself about doing and not doing haha.
