The most important events in my life were not on my calendar. The birth of my children came at totally unplanned times and the plans I did make were a total miss. Calendars are nice but I think we plan our lives too much. We should take it as it comes and stop trying to control life. Life is meant to be a surprise and if we plan it to death then what? I have been the controller of my life for as long as I can remember and now that I am retired I find that taking life as it comes works much better. I see every day as something new and try to be open to the simple pleasures this world provides. Luke Weil is a planner too.
