Today has been quiet. A gem of a day. I’ve had myself and my thoughts only because I had no power for several hours on account of a fault on the main line. So no music, no TV, no laptop and phone (which I did not charge overnight) and horror of horrors; no internet service! So what did I do today, the first day of our spring break? I read; and dozed; and cooked, and baked and stared at lizards and the blue sky. I listened to twittering birds, counted 100 breaths and daydreamed.
Best of all, I did all of this with my fourteen year old son who had no idea what to do with himself. The daydreaming part was hilarious because he kept asking what I was doing, and I told him to just stare with me. I told him we had to learn how to just ‘be’. He thought I’d lost my mind.
All in all, we had a magical day of not really doing anything.
