"There are a lot of ‘Irish’ pubs in America, but they just don’t have the ‘craic.’ You know the word ‘craic,’ don’t you? Craic is a special fun atmosphere that Irish people can produce. Some Irish people have more craic than others. There are all kinds of craic. There’s good craic, mighty craic, savage craic, and deadly craic. Then there are boring people who have no fun inside of them. We call that minus craic."

Love learning new words like this!

““Why am I here?” It’s a useful question to ask often. Either it will re-focus your reasons for being where you are, or it will make you realize your reasons have expired and you should be somewhere else.”

Why am I here? | Derek Sivers

That choice we make to live where we live, is a profoundly critical choice, yet we often get too settled, unable to easily move on, and we avoid that “Why am I here?” question.

Should you be moving on?

P.S. In today’s connected world, “Because my family is here.” may be a cop out…

“If you can walk to work or take your bike on a daily basis, I think that’s just about the coolest thing that there is. Every morning I listen to the traffic on the radio, and they talk about how they are jammed and I just laugh. I love traffic. I love traffic reports because I’m not in any of them.”

Jerry Seinfeld, urbanist.

Pretty much how I feel about working from home (mostly), walking the dogs in the morning or having coffee in the garden, and escaping from the traffic we dealt with living on O’ahu. Love living on a neighbor island and not the busiest ones.

Nature break to get up and get away from my work on the computer for a few minutes. #1977 the pleasure of having a home office, though I suppose everyone can do it wherever they work… I loved the walk-arounds I was able to do while working at the Hualalai Resort, drinking in the beauty of my sense of place while there… So take 5; appreciate wherever you are #Nānāikekumu
