Two super intense wonderful days (yet more than that if you include + prep +travel +marketing etc. etc.)…

A whirlwind 2 day visit to the San Juan Islands to teach “Real Estate in the Social Age”  a 3 clock hour class for local Realtors®. After my last session (2nd day) on Orcas Island I was finally done about 12:30 pm or so and headed to the waterfront in Eastsound.

Just off Main Street there’s a wonderful little waterfront park just off and west of old downtown. It was so (unusually) quiet, so peaceful. I got to.decompress for a while and just be quiet and listen to nothing but the water and the birds who call it home. No agenda…

Much needed time for reflection, to reassess, re-evaluate life and everything that is, and enjoy it… It actually took a few minutes, but this old Pacific Northwest guy felt the glow and brightness of his soul again.

I come from here, the Pacific Northwest. Not from Orcas Island, from way farther south (Renton/Seattle) but just the same it’s the Salish Sea, my Puget Sound.

I’m reminded it’s true what Grandma Pauline and my Mom said often when I was growing up. “You’re so fortunate and blessed to live in God’s country.” Amen… I am…
