First Watercolor Postcard
I am off Monday and Tuesday and when I look ahead to these days off, I realize how time is precious.
I go on about my day a lot of times in auto pilot mode. Not thinking about each breath I take, the intricacies of life and how the decisions I make are so intertwined with who I am and where I am in life.
When I look at these few days ahead of me and how I can dedicate them exclusively to the things that are dear to me, I realize how ephemeral the ideas of power, money, status, and pride are. And how easy it is to waste time on the unimportant.

When I walk around my office and I see people fighting with each other about some stupid power struggle, that in the end it is so counterproductive to the goal, I understand how easy it is to be caught in the illusion of what is really important.
Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. Le Petit Prince (1943)- by Antoine de Saint Exupéry
