The world lays in wait. Your Best days remain ahead. Find your Way, my son, for it is up To you to plot a course. Set goals, Predict your own successes. Your life is in your hands. The Future bears no boundaries. It Is waiting for you To shape it. Create your utopia, child. It is all within your reach.
So the letter “X” fell on my 40th birthday. I was tempted to post nothing but pictures of this date from different calendars all crossed out with giant “X”s. However, I’m not THAT mad about it. Besides, it was a lot more fun to write about my favorite place on planet Earth, my Xanadu, the cottage. My Dad has this amazing escape on a lake up north. There are no motors allowed on the lake. It is quiet. There is no cell phone reception. It is peaceful. We are surrounded by hills and trees. It is beautiful. We have fires and roast marshmallows. It is entertaining. When the silence needs to be broken, we ride ATVs or do some target practice. It is utopia.
Pure crisp air
Placid blue waters
Escape to serenity
It is here that I am found
When life goes astray
The beach house rules are easy to follow, and contain a few “x”s.
