we here at the onion know all too well about this end of the life's spectrum. there isn't a reader/contributor in this joint that doest have a story or twelve to tell about this unfortunate fact of life. i know it, you know it, your dog knows it and sometimes your gold fish knows it... so i have composed a small list of places id rather be when these events take place... i'll share mine if you share yours and perhaps it will give us an opportunity to have a new place to dream about, somebody else's dream...
i'd rather be hanging out with my mom at natasha lake in front of our families cabin, sitting on the dock fishing... sharing a cigarette, listening to the sound of the ice tinkling in moms rum and coke and watching the sun set on the glacier across the lake.
id rather be in third gear going uphill sideways around a corner on my dirt bike in the middle of a pack of ten dudes on the south coast dirt roads of bigsur...
id rather be sitting in a hot tub over looking the ocean at the end of a hard days work.
id rather be drinking at the bar alone with no one else around but me, only the attentive but not invasive bartender and the noise from a television in the background.
i was working at a positive angle here, you dont have too, but thats what i was doing.... give it a shot you might find that doing exactly as you are doing is where you want to be... cause realistically id rather be at home on a day off relaxing, having a cold beer, eating some yummy leftovers and catching up with the planet... it just so happens that i am enjoying that pleasure this very instant.
