Dang – today has been even busier than yesterday. Busy – interesting word. Ask almost anyone how they are these days and they will say, “Busy” – declaring it like it’s a badge of honour.
I’m aiming for saying, “idle and lazy” – I think that’s a great goal. I think it is far more honourable to have time to mediate, to just sit and stare, to daydream, to lollygag – to laugh at the antics of the dog.
Yup – I see nothing worthy of great respect in busy. I aim to be more of a human being and less of a human doing.
That said, this is a state I am in the process of achieving. Teh plan is in place. It’s coming. In the meantime, I do have some priorities. I still have time to walk Abby in the back 40 every morning and take photos. I still make time to walk in the park with her very afternoon.
These are things I will not compromise. And now, only two days of work left and then a Friday adventure/exploration hike up a new route to Mount Benson and a huge hike in the Sooke Hills on Saturday.
