For the past few years, I have written a loving Valentine’s Day message about my two wives.
This past year the world pandemic has slowed my travels, providing me with a lot more time for writing and reading. During these times, I have reflected upon what is essential for my life.
My offspring, family, and friends are a priority as they are always concern about my nomadic wanderings around the U. S.
I love my outdoor life of bicycling, backpacking, photographing landscapes and wildlife. But, my wives demanded more from me, so I compromised setting parameters to accommodate all of my loves.
My dedicated desk for writing and reading has promoted comfortable opportunities beyond what I could have imagined. But I miss the Denny’s, Starbucks, and Panera bread destinations because people would bring my food and drink to me. I now have to take time to prepare whatever I want. 🙁
My first wife, “writing,” is my passionate compulsion, and she has influenced me more than I could have ever imagined.
My second wife, “reading,” is equal to writing as she nourishes and inspires my creative soul aiding in my writing of short stories & novels. Together they are the foundations of my life.
They still become jealous when I’m enjoying my other hobbies. I recently set an organized weekly schedule setting aside time for each to bring a loving harmony to our lives.
Happy Valentine’s Day, Writing & Reading.
PS: Photography, bicycling, and backpacking your times are coming.
