And I'm on Etsy!

I'm working on doing the act of doing. Huh?

It's been a bit slow around these here parts lately. I blame summer. And the economy. And the fact that I'm too chicken to sell myself on the corner for extra cash.

Aside from those little peskery things, I am working on the art of doing and the act of being. I've been reading books on buddhism and trying to follow the simple (yet complicated) mode of thought. Not living past, nor future, but simply living in the now.

"Tomorrow will be better!" I say in the present. (Does that count?)

Until tomorrow, to which I write in the present, knowing I will come back to this soon, and therefore it keeps my thoughts in the now and the near future, I sign off to bed....see how uncomplicated I make things?

I've been reading a lot on Buddhism and Dharma too. It is something that can occupy your mind for hours trying to think about nothing!
Keep it up. :)

Of all the religions, I find Buddism the most fascinating to read about.

I agree with you both and it's been so helpful even in the briefest of moments or largest of situations. :)

Yes doing nothing is great.
That is when I find I can channel & create art.know myself and listen to my inner self.
