Nothing on the agenda. Nothing I have to do. Oh, I am still so in love with nothing! Today was a great “nothing” day, although in the middle of it I went out to lunch with a dear friend, so that was something – but it was scheduled less than 24 hours earlier and it was great fun!
Other nothing things: Sitting on the front porch watching a cicada calling from a low magnolia branch, then noticing a green lizard climbing along another branch. Noting that the lizard looked too small to eat the cicada. Meditating under the trees in the back with the cat and being surprised when the timer went off – I love when I’m not wondering when the timer’s going to go off instead of noting my breathing! Yoga (including practicing some pincha mayurasana) reading (a lot), writing (some), napping (a little), and enjoying a rain shower. Walking through the yard after the rain shower, admiring butterflies and flowers, drinking iced coffee, and looking at the late afternoon moon, dwarfed by giant powerlines but still seeming so large.
Then I looked up at the small powerlines and counted half a dozen dragonflies perched. I was awed. I’m easily awed.
I cannot remember the last time I was bored. I still have so many things I want to do – including lots of “nothing” things! Summer is great for embracing nothing.
