Mind Spinning
This morning was a tough sit....mind racing ahead of the moment to the day's concerns....nothing unusual about this, this 'monkey mind' of mine...I guess its a good dose of humble pie for gettiing complacent...for getting stuck in goal pre-occupations and pretending that I am not...I am glad to be able to have this 'space' not share this...

Midnight
in a wind swirl;
snow's whiteness.

This is only a problem if no-chatter is the goal, right? Otherwise it's just... more interesting stuff to look at :)

Hah!!!You are so right! Thanks for the reminder. Its easy to operate from a double-standard. i.e.: telling others, Like you stated Tom: "more interesting stuff to look at".....or as I will say: "mind is supposed to think, that is exactly what it does..."
That is everybody else's mind except mine....[must be a harsh and misguided super-ego lurking around there somewhere...LOL] ~P

LOL -- I do this ALL the time. I expect myself to be perfect, and not to get caught up in distractions. But I think it just doesn't work that way -- at least not for me. Maybe some day I'll be perfectly enlightened, but I'm not right now, so clinging to a need to be perfectly clear-mind is counterproductive (again, for me :)
