Yesterday I spent six hours helping a friend strip wallpaper throughout his new home. So did about ten other people. It was really great to watch a group come together around a single person’s needs. It was also very rewarding to work with my hands again, as I spend far too much of my life sitting in front of the keyboard.
Afterwards, I went with my family to the park and enjoyed walking in the 68 degree weather (it had been 41 when I started working that morning). Last night a group of us went out to enjoy a nice dinner at Sullivan’s. All in all a very nice, rewarding day. I need more of those… how do I structure my career and life to attain this sort of goal?
