When I go over to work on my train layout for a little while most days, I get “lost” in the universe I’ve created. I don’t live by others’ rules or metrics. I mix eras, create novel scenes, establish my train routes. I solve some problems, adjust to others, but I never seek perfection or “completion.” I never arrive or depart unhappy. It’s always a positive experience.

Those are pretty good conditions by which to lead your life, actually. My life, my rules, so long as I don’t inconvenience or harm you. And, mostly, I’m helping you, because I’m keeping myself emotionally, spiritually, and intellectually healthy.
