Enjoying the View on the Road to the Owl Pen Books

 Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey. -Barbara Hoffman

In my previous post about the enchanting Owl Pen Books in Greenwich, I likened the route to the book store as winning the photo op lottery. If you're like us and love country roads, beautiful farms, and vistas for miles, you'd love it to. Not every road leading to Owl Pen is a dirt road, but Riddle Road is a classic, narrow, tree canopied dirt road and lucky for me, I married a man who isn't all about fancy cars and isn't afraid of dirt, dust or an occasional pothole. Dirt roads are my favorite kind of road. So, to back up my claim that the road to Owl Pen is as much fun as the 100,000 books inside the old barns, here's a photo documentation of our commute those last few miles between the village of Greenwich and Owl Pen from our first visit in May and our visit last week. Buckle up and enjoy the view!

See what I mean? Life gets crazy and it's so easy to get caught up in the agendas, to-do lists, the things that occupy the squares on our calendars. Those things are important, but it's also important to stop once in a while, catch our breath and remember that life isn't always about the destination. We need to take time to enjoy the ride, savor the journey and refocus on what's important. This weekend, take some time out of your schedule to turn off your phone, ignore the honey-do list and enjoy living. Take the road that leads to your happy place and when you can, take the road less traveled and be surprised where it leads. And don't forget to come back soon to Life As I See It.
