Idyllic Places

I think most if not all of us dream of living in "utopia" in some form or other. For me utopia is a place that is quiet and natural with a temperate climate (and horses somewhere in the picture). Here's a little self-motivational write-up I did that illustrates my ideal situation; both geographically and professionally...

We Made It

Here we are; Jeff and me. A mild late afternoon breeze caresses our faces bringing with it the fresh earthy scents of mid-summer.
We’re sitting on our cozy covered porch overlooking the lake. The water is as still as glass.
I hear a horse whinny off in the distance; one of our horses calling over to another. I’d just finished a pleasant ride through our forested trails on the property. Jeff had just finished his latest toy figure. This creation is going to be as great a hit as the others. I have another horse sculpture in the works. It’s almost done and there’s a long list of people anxiously awaiting its release. All in good time however. There’s no need to rush.
Our real estate investments are all performing marvelously; generating lots of passive income for us. This combined with our solidly successful toy, game and sculpture business has us living a secure, comfortable and very pleasant existence here on our lakeside acreage.
My parents live on the property with us in their own little cottage. We also have a guesthouse that accommodates the regular visits of friends and relatives.
Jeff and I are both in excellent health. We are fit, well-rested and stress-free. We look forward to many more happy years together as we continue to enjoy this wonderful life's journey.

Ah yes...now if only I could be living that idyllic lifestyle THIS VERY MOMENT. All in good time however. Jeff and I are on our way.
