Human Beings

Quiet moments.

I am sitting in “my chair” and have been reading. My husband and oldest are watching an old Monty python (“You published an English/Hungarian phrase book with intent to disturb the peace.”)

I need to cook dinner. I need to work on the book deadline. I need to finish the graduation movie.

Perhaps what I really need is to stop blogging and sit here and laugh at this movie with my family.

Perhaps you need to stop reading and do something you really need to do.

We are human beings not human doings. If we spent time being maybe we'd spend more time doing when it is time to do.

  1.  Ooh, this is perfect. It comes near the end of a school year, a very busy school year and now spring planting, spring cleaning and the race to the end of the school year! I planned to be outside when it is nice, inside when it is rainy or evening. Outside I am off the grid, except for an occasional podcast, when I am gardening alone. Vicki, nicely said, Be in the Moment! Enjoy the Now, Make memories for later.See you in a month!
