Most human beings spend all our time as human doings. Just being somewhere without the compelling need to do something is not easy. Every so often a place or a special insight triggers a refreshing notion of “stop and just enjoy!”

One of my special places is the Lafayette Bakery in Carmel. As you enter you are greeted by a message that makes me smile and turn off my phone….

Another “place apart from others” is Big Sur. Only miles south of Carmel, yet light years from the normal day to day doings. Nature has a way of saying, “no wifi here, enjoy!”
