"how easy it is..."

Here's a little ditty I dreamed up while reflecting on all the things on my list of things which are on the other lists of things to do before I can do the things on the list that I want to do....

Here I sit - Relaxing after work. It's so easy - everyday life is NOT hard.

First... Alarm goes off - wake up - get out of bed - simple - certainly not hard.
Then... Get dressed - again -a no brainer. Walk outside to the truck - simple.
Key in - turn - drop in gear - right pedal - simple. Certianly not hard to do.
At work... computer keys, phone calls, make crap - simple - every other Thursday - collect a check and give it all away - a bill at a time. Simple - Again. Stop for lunch - a tank of gas - back home - mow the grass - simple - any kid could do it. Blow the leaves - vacuum the pool, nothin to it - how easy it is...
Wash the clothes - the truck, the dog - every day - just like the last - once a month go to the po box and get the next issue of blue water sailing or ocean news or sport diver or whatever - spend the next few minutes dreaming of of going to all the pretty places other than right here.
Dream the wishful dream - try to imagine life without a job - without a schedule - without an appointment - a phone - a truck - a mortgage or insurnace bill or even a lawn to mow!
How easy it is...
...and just look how easy it is to think that next year or next month or next week I'll start working on getting that sailboat & cruising places I only see in books. How easy it is - to just wake up every day and think that tomorrow will be any different than today. Life as you want it to be is certainly NOT easy.
