Have you ever seen that movie where the actor repeats the same day over and over again? That’s my life right now only I am first in the wash and then the spin cycle. First there is Immigration, then Boat Drill, a Cocktail Party, Dinner at the Captain’s table, Nassau and then Florida again.
I decided to break up the pattern a bit today and actually ventured into the gym. Until now I have only been walking on the running track outside because the air conditioning is so cold inside that I just cannot get motivated enough to do anything else but go outside to warm up.
I momentarily wondered why I decided to extend my stay here only because I am itching a bit to get back to reality. But my common sense has also told me that there is no need to rush into any rash decisions either.
If the next 10 days are anything like the rest of my summer, then time will surely fly by at rapid speed. Only when I am back to running for the bus, fighting traffic or cursing the never ending rain in Genoa will I transport my mind back to this time of frivolity and freedom.
I suppose in some ways I would like my life to have more meaning and purpose. Being childless leaves one to wonder a bit what else to do with one’s life to give it some significant meaning. I am not sure if it is my ego that needs to be fulfilled or my soul. Or maybe it’s both.
Anyways, I am sure that the Universe will work its natural course in due time and in the meantime I will enjoy the ride.
