When it comes to little "l" life, you need something to take you out of it from time to time. Big "L" life is overarching. But for little "l" life, I rely on things like Carl Hiassen novels or playing the guitar or the much lamented Gilmore Girls. And this blog. I can think of so many things that I escape into. And most of the people I love, I can think of their things: Football. Reality TV. Young adult novels. Facebook. Exercise. Cooking.
I think it must be a hard life when there's not time for that escape, or even time to figure out what it is.
So, what's your thing? If you don't have one - better find it!
