I seem to be working faster and harder than ever. I absolutely dont feel any urge to sit back and look at what Ive done. The only things that Im thinking about are things Id like to do in the future. Im planning and doing and continuing to write.

Its what I love to do. I remember a story about an anthropologist going to talk to a tribe and he asked them what was their word for work. Their response was they have no word for work. Everybody does the things that they do in their life. I love that response. I dont differentiate between work and play. Everything I do is something that I enjoy doing - the writing, the research and everything else.Seymour Simon writes and photographs nature from his hilltop home in Columbia County in upstate New York, where he lives with his wife Liz Nealon.You can follow Seymour on Facebook and on Twitter, as well as on his website, which offers free, downloadable Teacher Guides to his books for educators, parents and homeschoolers, as well as the popular Seymour Science Daily Blo
