Flying while doing nothing

Bethany Legg

I am making several attempts to do nothing these days. Not all days or every day, just some days. It is a difficult thing for me to do. My mind is always racing to the next thing or imagining the next thing and sometimes even the next thing after that. 

I set my timer and for an hour I sit still. I allow myself to read a book. Nothing heavy, something fun and not too deep. I am not allowed to make plans, think of plans, imagine projects, accept projects, make deadlines, or anything else that could be construed as work. 

I am not doing too well with this latest endeavor. I will keep at it. I must keep at it. I think it is the only way my mind will expand to include rest and relaxation. At least that is my hope.
