notes on a simple life

one story || week 3

“Thinking about something is like picking up a stone when taking a walk, either while skipping rocks on the beach, for example, or looking for a way to shatter the glass doors of a museum. When you think about something, it adds a bit of weight to your walk, and as you think about more and more things you are liable to feel heavier and heavier, until you are so burdened you cannot take any further steps, and can only sit and stare at the gentle movements of the ocean waves or security guards, thinking too hard bout too many things to do anything else.” 
― Lemony SnicketThe End

my week has been full of tiny little moments
a quiet week, working hard to not
weigh myself down with over thinking
especially about things that are out of my control
or things i am really only speculating about 


Our vision is more obstructed by what we think we know than by our lack of knowledge.
 ~ Krister Stendahl 

three things ::
1. i am on day 14 of morning meditation and some days are a bomb and others are working
2. we are heading to the snow in a few day
3. there are signs of spring outside and buried socks (no, i did not bury them) 

berries in the yard
for the birds,
and for picture taking

“My life has no purpose, no direction, no aim, no meaning, and yet I'm happy. I can't figure it out. What am I doing right?”
