The Simpler Things in Life

Last week, I bought these beautiful, colorful tomatoes at the market. Don't they just remind you of everything that's good about summer? Fresh tomatoes with pepper? Vanilla ice cream just before bed? The slight sting of too much sun?Corn on the cob dripping with butter? A cold beer after coming off the beach? Burgers off the grill? Sand between your toes? Salty skin after a day at the beach, riding waves?
That too tired feeling that comes at night after a long day of doing nothing at the beach?
Life here for the past few weeks has been that simple -- no deadlines, no watches, no alarms and practically no e-mail. There have been days when I don't check my voicemail 'til right before bed and instead try to focus on the here and now.
