When I enter a house, I have a habit of finding the spot where my dad would sit if he were still alive. He always went for a chair’s position rather than a chair’s comfort. He was all about the view, be it over a room where he could see everything going on or near a window to take in the trees or the ocean. On this Thanksgiving I was reminded of his habit as I took in the ocean view I’m so lucky to have today. Focus more on enjoying your surroundings than sinking into a seat. Enjoy looking outward while being anchored on firm ground. Take a moment or several to just notice and breath in your surroundings. Presence in the moment matters. Thanks for all of that, Dad.

Things of interest, also in no particular order: keeping cities local; avocados; young companies; education; day to day operational combat; cooking; writing; eating; menu planning; drawing; puzzles; wine; child development; things that make people laugh; real connections more than just cyber connections.
