A grey and stormy day in Grenada at the most remote Caribbean hotel I’ve ever stayed at. After breakfast I remark to the owner: “this feels like a wonderful day to do nothing”.
“Isn’t every day a wonderful day to do nothing?”, he replied.
“That sounds like a ‘Winnie the Pooh’ quote“, I said.
We both laughed as I walked off down the hill to the terrace outside my room to read, to doze, and now to write this.
It may not have been a quote from Pooh bear, but it was indeed in that vein.
Also this morning, I was asked, quite philosophically: “who are you?”. After a doze, I thought to myself: “I’m a man who sometimes makes the simple too complex”.
Today is indeed a wonderful day to do nothing, to take Pooh as my role model.
Sometimes I overthink life and what it takes to be happy, fulfilled, contented.
Today. I think I will not think very much, I will simply do nothing.
