It’s easy for me to get overly focused on crossing things off my list. Each day can be like a little contest with myself – how much can I get done? These daily contests can be so consuming that anything non-list annoys me, and I lose connection with my inner self. I need to remind myself that sometimes it’s important to just be. My sister and I would call it “loafing” when one of us discovered the other one just sitting, staring at the wall. Loafing is important.

That’s a brussels sprout plant from our garden.
