a bit more nothing - and a little something

so to clarify - i am lousy at meditating. the closest i come, like gwen, is when i am knitting. i am also a pretty lousy knitter. must concentrate on each and every move i make. i like it this way. makes me completely clear my mind for the task at hand.

and i am not any good at doing nothing either. i worry that if i start doing nothing it will be too difficult for me to return to something.

in further conversation i was told that one should not attempt to discover the nothingness behind you (ayin) without a guide as if it is reached, you may be lost. so there we go.

anyway, enough...

here is a little something i added to the top of a package for my dear dear friend to wear in her hair.

My god, I'm like that too. I can't sit still...I have to be doing something and Mark gets really p***ed at me because I can't just sit down to watch a movie for a couple of hours. If I do I have to be doing something.

And, knitting, yes, trance, like, state.

Nothing is hard. Especially for us creative types whose minds run so rapidly...

Love the flower!

Doing nothing = intense guilt.

My problem is that I can't decide if that is a problem, or a good thing!

You've got me thinking. Happy weekend to you, too.

I know, I find it really hard to just do "nothing" or turn off the brain.
Maybe this weekend I'll try though.
ommmm.
I love the flower, so cute.
