Day 4

Miss Pickles -  Perfecting the art
of doing nothing

"In this media-drenched, data-rich, channel-surfing, computer-gaming age, we have lost the art of doing nothing, of shutting out the background noise and distractions, of slowing down and simply being alone with our thoughts."  –Carl Honor√©

Today I find I am feeling quite unmotivated to write at all.  Maybe it's the heat, maybe it's my mood (blahhhhhh) but today is the sort of day where I really just want to sit in my room, with the door closed and do...

NOTHING

Despite my best efforts I have accomplished some things today.

  • I went for a walk by the river where I sat for a bit and cried, because I was sad and well...crying seemed appropriate. 
  • I started baked beans in the crock pot.  They will be done soon and I will be able to accomplish something else, eating them. 
  • I took a nap. 
  • I ate a sandwich. 
  • I ate a slice of quiche. 
  • I did my monthly new moon tarot reading (yes..two days late, I know, I know)
  • Watched a documentary on South American traditional medicine.  
  • Pet the cat. 
  • Read a chapter of a book while sitting on the front porch. 
  • Watched a Ted Talk on posture and spent about 15 minutes trying to improve mine. 
  • I wrote in my journal. 

Apparently I'm not all that good at doing nothing, especially since I can now add writing today's blog post to the list.
