How We Spend Our Days is How We Spend Our Lives

In conversation this week with someone embarking on a new path, I happened to bring up Annie Dillard's quote "How we spend our days is how we spend our lives." Often, we're so busy with the day to day list of things that need to get done, we seldom pause to reflect upon this.

Luckily for me, I have a lot of time to think, especially on my long training runs. Lots of moving meditation and nature time. Today was an exceptional day for running (cloud cover!) to La Playa Trail and Shelter Island. I am grateful for how I get to spend my days.

And, yes, I rode the swing :)
