we have no time to stop & stare", begins the beautiful William Henry Davies poem ‘Leisure’. This line has been a refrain throughout my day today.
I have been sitting here for twenty minutes typing, deleting, re-typing about my earlier technological problem… In fact, I have even just had to delete & re-type that sentence. I am too tired to think properly & write coherently. So I will simply record that Davies so was right. Just staring is so important; so amazing; so satisfying. It soothes my soul. Today started in a stressful & negative way because I didn’t observe my usual ritual of getting out of bed & just staring at the beautiful countryside outside the bedroom window. I sacrified this calming, grounding, peaceful moment because I thought I was too busy today. What a fool am I.
