This is why

Recently, in one of the blogs that I often read, the author said that she never gets bored. I do get bored. I feel ignorant people are boring, work that isn't stimulating is boring, ad nausam routine is boring.
Am I especially exciting or dynamic? I don't think so. With the exception of of a handful of people and a couple of animals, I do not have any particular importance. I make an effort to live an interesting life. I try to surround myself with people who are intelligent, stimulating and active. I want to be around people who inspire me. I enjoy life-long learning. When I get involved with a project, I do my homework, researching and learning all that there is to know. Thriving on being busy, working hard, I go, go, go.
Then I need to stop. I need to rest. This is why I love to stay home. The peace, the tranquility, the simplicity of staying home replenishes me, revives me, re-charges my batteries so that I might get back at it.
beyond the deck, this morning.
the fire that I built, first thing
warms me to the bone
between the fire and myself
beside me
our afternoon walk
plowing through
what was that?
the branches of our formidable pine create a frame
sunset on the farm
the hands that I love


Not one time did I leave the house. Not one moment was I bored.
