Houses, condos and apartments have a number of rooms; usually a kitchen, dining room, den, bedroom and living room. We spend about one third of our life in the bedroom. A lot of time is spent in the kitchen and dining room. The den or family room is often where people gather. But, why not the living room? As one who believes passionately in prospective living, I like to do more living in the living room. Why save and preserve it? Wasn't it meant to be used? There's only so much time. Recall the exhortation, "Remember to Live", that I have offered on a number of occasions in these letters. Let's live in the living room.
I'll be in touch next month.
