Remember this? I’m still working on it.
I’ve really been working on it on the trip. Yesterday, after I finished all of the projects in a (self-imposed) respectable manner, I went down to the shore of the island. I’m doing a pretty good job with the first part – being entirely in whichever place I’m in, not planning ahead to the next day or week or location. But being still-minded in that particular place…that’s an entirely different battle.
I went down to the shore and collected beach rocks.
And tweeted about my location.
And took a thousand pictures.
And checked ferry times for tomorrow.
And read a few pages in my book.
Before I realized that I missed a good rock.
And a good picture.
And another good picture.
And realized that I forgot to check on college football scores.
And found a few more rocks.
And remembered that I was not supposed to be multi-tasking in a thousand directions.
So I laid on a piece of drift wood and started listening to the waves crash in and out, the birds flying overhead.
And then I started writing this blog in my head.
And took some more pictures.
And considered stopping a lost cause.
I still have no idea how to completely slow down, but hearing this sermon last week helped put things in perspective. Whether you’re a Martha or a Mary or somewhere in between, I’d highly suggest giving it a listen.
Happy Sunday, everyone! Have a great weekend!
