Sometimes I am doing lots of things at once. I call it spherical living and I wouldn’t have it any other way. This decision to live in this manner keeps me on my toes and eventually reaches the deepest recesses of my dreams to make me create even though I am fast asleep. My mind is always on and even when my body is in sleep stance my brain can rotate thoughts, memories, dreams and schemes without pausing for a break. I would say that I have to conscientiously quiet my mind and become centered.
Although I do practice this meditative state, there is another department wondering about the next post, editing another article, thinking of a catchy phrase, considering what the next step will be, and the importance of socializing with bloggers, colleagues, my family, husband, showing attention to my kitties, which room I’ll clean, and asking “Did I set up the coffee pot for tomorrow morning?” The brain she is never resting, not really.
So while these matters are bouncing about, I write a new show, pen some prose, check a recipe, or review another chef or member. I listen to music, watch two televisions, glance at the news and stroll through cyber space, all with remarkable ease and speed. I promulgate, offer advice, encourage and hold onto the deep-seated belief, that in the long run everything will work out in the world, eventually, and if I keep my eye on the ball, there will be balance, interesting things to do and a wealth of friends to visit.
