tonight i cleaned and organized the disarray that surrounded me. clothes back in drawers and on hangers. laundry folded. kitchen swept and swiffered. and at this juncture, i’d like to pause and officially thank the creative genius behind the swiffer. i charged my ipod and my shuffle and the battery for my camera. i answered emails. i returned calls. i debated about whether to go to the grocery store and buy real food – but then decided i was perfectly content with a dinner of yogurt, almonds, frozen banana slices drizzled with maple syrup.
my life recently has been full to capacity and so the ‘to do’ list grows increasingly longer – but it occurs to me that what doesn’t get done today, may get done tomorrow, and even if it doesn’t, it’s probably not that important anyway.
impromptu list of things that are more important than the things on my to do list
seeing the stars that are held captive in certain eyes
noticing the perfection that exists in nature. a blade of grass. a petal. a cherry.
forehead pressed against forehead
smiling at strangers, and friends, and not yet friends
hands holding hands
spontaneous ballroom dancing in the middle of the street
inhaling and exhaling
anything that is whispered
