Things and Stuff

Things and stuff on my mind.

  • Survival mode
  • Shared life/Private life balance (boundaries)
  • Mindfulness in the Midst of Calamity
  • The (unconditional) Beauty of Others
  • Love in the Time of Corona
  • War and Chaos
  • The Persistent Illusion of Time

“I am old, Gandalf. I don’t look it, but I am beginning to feel it in my heart of hearts. Well-preserved indeed! Why, I feel all thin, sort of stretched, if you know what I mean: like butter that has been scraped over too much bread. That can’t be right. I need a change, or something.”
– J.R.R. Tolkien

What have you been pondering?

  1. You got me thinking about “The (unconditional) Beauty of Others” Something very interesting to ponder that I’ve never thought of. I will ponder this for awhile.

  2. I have been pondering the Shared Life/Private Life boundary idea lately. If I spend too much time socializing, I can’t accomplish any goals, read any books, or do things I enjoy doing b myself. If I spend too much time by myself, I feel withdrawn, and neighbors and friends probably think I’m weird or ignoring them. Only so much time in each week, so a tricky balance.
