….and Nothing

Yeah, I’ve got some leaves to rake up.

When you’ve got a “to do” list that is more like a “to do” book, and when you suspect that there might have to be a second volume to this book, then you’ve got two choices. You can either get down to it, or you can procrastinate.

Based on the title of this blog, you can probably guess what I did. Instead of doing the raking, the painting, the fixing….and all the other words that end in “ing”, I did none of them. I decided that this was a good weekend for doing nothing that productive.

Don’t get me wrong. I did things, I just didn’t do anything from my “to do” novel. I watched a rather low scoring Notre Dame college football game–and those are rare. I worked on a jigsaw puzzle. I spent time with my girlfriend. I ate some good food. I had some good conversations. I listened to some great music. I slept a little late and I didn’t really worry about any of it.

My responsibilities and tasks may not have gone away, but I’m okay. Sometimes, you need to stop worrying about progress and take a little break. Sometimes, you need a little perspective. It might be lazy, but it also feels good. Sometimes that is Today’s Perfect Moment.

    Like it. On a fall day. Just sitting or laying around. Reading The Sun on the couch. It is a great day.
