I want to sit here longer…”

Annie Mueller, in I am adamantly opposed to urgency:

I need to shower, start laundry, do chores, start work, get the day moving forward. Where is the pause button? I’m competent and I can do so much but I don’t want so much to do. I want to sit here longer, to move unhurried, to glide, to breathe, to be ordered but not scheduled, to release into reverie, to let my mind wander, my shoulders loosen, my being melt and flow with curiosity, delight, warmth, ease.

I am achieving some measure of unhurriedness this week.

Doing nothing is a luxury and may we all be rich!

I am living this life this week while dog sitting in Cable Head. Most important items on the agenda have been beach walks with Bodhi. I have been learning to fully enjoy solitude.
