Have you ever had someone casually ask you what you have been up to and you can’t think of anything in days to share with them.
It’s not that you haven’t done anything, it’s just that you are simply living each day in the moment and trying to explain that is not the point.
When I was asked yesterday, that is exactly what I thought. (Or didn’t think 🙂 )
I recognised that the lack of an exciting or interesting response IS the point.
The point is BEing. When I can’t think of anything of note then it means I am in a good place: the kind of place with me that I increasingly relish. A place of BEing quiet and BEing peaceful and a good portion of that time simply BEing with me.
There is often a good deal of reading, writing and simply going about my day without big plans.
Often the daily routine will involve spending time with family and friends and these days, grabbing my camera and taking pictures: random things that please my eye and in that moment I enjoy capturing.
Yesterday I told my son that I wanted to take pictures of birds at sunset. Off we set…… and I did just that.
And me – well I was a happy bunny. A gentle drifting of time shared… chatting with my son, sipping my extra hot cafe latte and lots of birds, who were more than happy to share our space.
As I write today, I am part of the world around me, sitting on the balcony of my son’s apartment.
I can see rippling water, a streaked blue sky, boats at anchor, green grass, flowers, trees, birds and people. I hear children’s voices. I feel movement and stillness. There is activity and quiet and always there is birdsong.
This bunny remains happy simply BEing.
