For this week’s challenge, take a moment to notice your now, and share a photo of it. Perhaps it is something imperfect, or mundane, or under-appreciated. Maybe it is a simple moment, or maybe it is something grand; we can’t wait to see!
The above photo very accurately depicts my NOW! The inscription on the front of the bus says, “Easy, Like a Sunday Morning“. There’s a long story behind the bus and text. I’ll give you the short version here.
As long as I can remember, I’ve always wanted to travel. I never really got the chance to travel the way I’ve wanted. From a young age I dreamt of becoming a world traveler. Fifty plus years later I embarked on a mission to somewhat fulfill that dream. I bought an old school bus and commenced building it into my retirement home.
The bus pictured above is the result of those efforts. I now have the opportunity to travel around the USA volunteering with nonprofit organizations and seeing the sights of this great country. While the bus is still a work in progress, I’ve built such facilities into it as a motorized fold down murphy style wall bed, a walk-in sit-down Jacuzzi tub, in-floor heating and a complete work shop/craft shop in the rear eight feet of the bus.
I guess in the end my hoped for past is now my present.

Why the name Easy?
