Thoughts of the contents my life's legacy being chronicled in my own memoir were only natural after reading the intriguing episodes of Always Going.  To share another favorite quote from the author, "This business of being able to sit around all day and do nothing is something foreign to us today: an unknown lost art." Where do you call home? Are you always going or happy to do nothing?
