I have a week's leave and need some help switching off, slowing down...
I'm caught between the instinct to completely slob out and go inert for a week (which I suspect would make me feel bleeeagh) and the nagging conviction that I should be "getting on with things", "getting things done" ..... and also the knowledge that I ought to be resting and re-charging and living in a less task-oriented way for just a precious week ....
Balance is so tricky sometimes.
Why do we laugh so when the cat falls off the sofa or misses his step? I suspect we envy his mostly-perfect and thoughtless balance
as well as his ability to sleep and sleep
to lie and just be, no anxieties in his golden eyes,
to make the most of time to stretch
Not that he is immune to task-directedness.
He has few desires, but one of them is that penguin
It remains elusive
but he takes the foiling of his plans with equanimity and settles for the pen instead.
Equanimity. Wouldn't that be nice?
