Wow, I don’t really know how to respond to that. Mostly because I take a lot of things at face value and my first thought was quite literal.
So what am I doing today?
I’ll tell you what I’m not doing today.
I’m not doing any house work or homework or prepping for the week.
I’m not cleaning or organizing or cooking or planning for a potential move.
I’m not doing laundry or dishes, or the million other things written on the various to do lists I’ve made and promptly misplaced.
I’m not implementing any of the efficient systems I’ve created in my mind to make my life easier.
I’m not working on any of the half-finished or barely begun projects sitting neglected around the house.
I’m not crafting, planning or being productive in any way.
I’m pretty sure there’s someone in my yard – I am not going to check.
I am not running errands.
What I am doing is trying to figure out how I, personally, can draw a meerkat and a weasel and have them be identifiably different. I’m a long way from being an artist. And why does spell check tell me meerkat is spelled wrong (twice)? Maybe it’s never been to a zoo.
I am also wondering why my dog is licking my toe and why beeswax smells like sunshine.
I am considering drinking champagne.
I am questioning if there’s a way to calculate the speed of thought and how it compares to the speed of light. Probably it’s different for everyone. Maybe I’ll research this later.
I may light some candles and make more coffee. I love coffee.
I wonder if my head will every stop hurting and why my feet always itch.
It almost smells like snow.
I’m comforted by the sound of my dog snoring.
I hope it rains.
My brain is swirling in a million directions but me? I am sitting still.
