the problem with having nothing to do over an extended weekend is the unlimited opportunity to overthink. and overthinking about nothing is a bizarre practise.
I hate being bored, but these days I succumb to boredom without much protest. the body is still, but the mind whizzes; stress, doubts, questions about questions. a lot of my thoughts are useless - disciplining the mind is a life-long commitment.
and today, just as I was slipping into an abyss of ennui, cold pizza and Come Dine With Me re-runs, a friend on the other side of the planet emails me a picture he has drawn of me. Two in fact, detailed pencil sketches. We have never met in person, these are copies of photos he has of me.
you see, whatever we give our thoughts to is what we experience as real. I’ve seen nothing but chaos in my image of late - it’s remarkable that someone so far away can create a clearer vision of myself than I presently can.
thank you, Aaron, for bringing me back to the middle :)
"Recently I’ve learned that you can’t wait around for life to be good for you, you have to make it good for yourself with the resources that you have. That’s why you could own the whole entire world but if you don’t have the drive and urge to make your life special then you own absolutely nothing in the end."
