Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I spend a lot of time trying to keep streams and water in general
going in California. elsewhere, I keep the day-to-day as good as
possible (we all have to dust sometimes) and make the next great
thing happen. a sampling is: short and very long rafting and
kayaking excursions, mountain trips, sailing, concerts, lectures,
dinners here and out, making food and beer at home, throwing the
annual rager, hot tubs under the stars, scuba in preferably warm
and sometimes butt cold waters... i volunteer for some eco and
civic groups and take family and friends out on boats.

(In no particular order:) getting on or in whitewater, flatwater,
Bay water, hot tub and bath water, ocean water... (etc.), talking
about stuff (how's that for articulate?), making cappuccinos to
start the day, crosswords, words, pleasure, crossing between and
mixing groups, hosting events, homebrew, building, leading trips,
building fires, straps (!), giving/getting rubs (!!), figuring out
how to fix streams, kitty performance art.
