So, if you a follower of my blog, you have heard reference to Sam every now and then- he is my main squeeze and co-owner of MC. We have been flat out for, um 2 years, getting MC going, him in school and doing general work related endeavors for a long time. When we travel it is for a purpose, when we go out it is to release a tiny bit of steam and we work everyday, all the time.
But not this weekend!
Sam and I took a drive down the Irish Loop- which is the southern area of the avalon penn. We wanted to just have a time to chat, hang out and be two people- without any baggage. We drove and drove- through amazing spots along the loop-St. Vincents, Trepassey, Ferryland, Cape Broyale and found a bit of ourselves along the way.
Which brings me to my point: no matter what you do, no matter who you are and what you have influence over- the point is that you need joy and trust me, it is sometimes more difficult that you think to find. Sometimes it is a bit of a treasure hunt- you may have to get out of your own way to spot it. Joy isn't intrinsic- it is reactionary.
I know this sounds preachy and please don't take it like that- I deeply feel that this is a joyful world, the problem is sometimes I am- too busy being busy -that I fail to notice.

So, with the temp dropping and school starting everyone seems to be moping about Fall. That is everyone but me!
Fall- how I love thee! With the layers, tights, boots, hats, gloves, scarves, coats! The list grows and grows! With Stews, lamb, soups and harvest veggies- crisp sunny walks to crunchy frost grass, it makes my heart sing!
So take fall by the balls world- don't let the shorter summer days get you down (makes for more evening time anyway!). Its always way more fun to embrace what is around you rather than wishing you were somewhere else.
