Carpe Diem, Baby!

“Seize the moment. 

 Remember all those women on the Titanic who waved off the dessert cart.” 

  ~Erma Bombeck

 Now I’m not advocating that you gorge yourself on desserts (and Lord knows there’s enough of it around at this time of year). What I’m saying is to make room for some sweetness in your life.  For me, it’s reading.  Sticking my nose deep into a twisty, turny tale and losing all sense of time.  It’s because with reading, there’s not a chance I can multi-task.  I can’t walk on the treadmill and read.  I can’t cook dinner and read.  I can’t clean the house and read.   Reading demands my total attention and, since I seem to be 7 places at once most of the time, it’s the ultimate in a sweet escape. Carpe Diem, baby!
