Day 9: This is a seed.

I find myself wishing for my google reader account and wondering if I’ll make it 22 more days without it.

I know I should force myself to.

But there are times when I just want to take in the other , pre-thought, well formulated, succinct and selected things instead of sifting through my own head to make my own thoughts that way.

It’s easier to read and learn the thoughts of others than it is to focus and figure out your own.

It’s easier to spend your days hoarding too much…perfection, energy, creativity,input.

and giving too little…. Art, mindfulness, thought, time.

Without the ability to sit and wonder at the ways of God, of man and of everything else,

Without the ability to focus,

We wouldn’t have…art, science, love.

My ability to succeed in what I choose to do lies with my ability to focus.

And those are my oh so lovely, jumbled thoughts for today.

Just the beginnings of a thoughtful, thoughtfilled, thought-out life.

This is a seed.
