The gnawing in my gut is becoming an all too familiar feeling. I don’t want to adapt to it. It’s not normal.
During my break today (I work from home), I was able to get outside and enjoy the sunshine. I cleared debris from the parsley and cilantro plots and sprinkled seeds. Both plots are doing really well but there were some sparse areas I hope will fill in through the season. My daughter was playing with the ducklings in the wading pool. The cats were playing in the tall grass. Birds chirping, bees buzzing. A slightly cool day but in the sunshine it was just warm enough. The moment is perfect. So I took a deep breath and put everything else in the background. And I soaked it in. Perfect. A perfect moment. I savored it, trying to make it last for as long as possible.
Take a break when you need to. Put it all on pause. Enjoy that perfect moment for as long as it lasts.
If you go off into a far, far forest and get very quiet, you’ll come to understand that you’re connected with everything. ❧ Alan Watts
