The new life….

The new fridge is lovely and I am restocking it. It’s counter-depth so it will be easier to find things in it. Yesterday I felt bad and as a result did nothing. But today my energy was back and I went to two grocery stores.

I would like to share my dilemma with you all. Having been off of social media for about 3 months now, I am feeling the silence is much more powerful than it is. What to do?

I also notice that many more people are coming and going from it. They are taking regular breaks from this social machine that takes from us far more than it gives.

My life is a powerful one; I don’t need the distractions of the mind to dumb it down. I learned part of this lesson when I had to stop reading for a while. I haven’t missed it. Truth to tell, I have become the lessons. At some point, you just have to do that.

Rote learning is not enough. Shallow social engagements don’t do it for me. I prefer solitude to noise.

Oh, I still have periods of boredom and angst because I am human. But so much comfort comes to me through music and nature and lots of stillness.

I have written and said just about all I care to. Beyond that lies freedom and spontaneity. Sounds grand, doesn’t it?

  1. When I find myself at parties or in crowds (not often, but it happens!), I find myself just parked in one place, talking to whoever sits next to me, and pretty soon a little throng gathers round and we have a fun time chatting. I don’t have the seek the crowd, the crowd finds me. Much nicer, more relaxed, less desperation.
