real life

this by andrew peterson:

"Slowing down doesn’t mean a lack of activity, but a focus on the only activity that really matters at all. What I’m talking about is the heart. I’m talking about sinking into the good things, the noble things... they are shooting stars that we’ll never see until we drive out to the country and lay down in a sleeping bag on a dewy slope to wait and watch for them."

i want to not be lazy with the shooting stars around and in me. the de-cluttering can be sort of overwhelming. i am aware of this. with awareness brings a hopeful resolve. i want to be different.
