With 19 out of 26 episodes of Growing a Greener World already in the can, I have been ordered by my family and crew to cease and desist immediately for a much needed break.
I have to admit, actually stopping to take a break is a forgotten art for me. I never think I was very good at that anyway. But thank goodness I love my work and as they say, when you love what you do for a living, it’s really not work. That’s how I feel. Yet with many deadlines and a calendar that never stops, neither has our production schedule…until now. For the rest of this week, I am going to be doing something that seems rather foreign to me: rest.
During our most grueling winter days on the road, I would often hear one of my favorite country songs on the radio and dream of summer days doing just what he was describing in his lyrics;
“Toes in the water, a.. in the sand, not a care in the world, a cold beer in my hand, life is good today….life is good today”.
So to all of you who have been so supportive of all of us at GGW and our efforts thus far, this is a time to celebrate and rest. We have accomplished so much already. And the best is yet to come. I hope you all continue to have a safe and happy summer… and remember; when life gives you limes, put ‘em in beer!
