"The worst feature of a new baby is its mother's singing." — Kin Hubbard
I wish I lived during simpler times
When text messages or emails were letters written, sealed with wax and mailed with hopeful intentions
When the sound of clopping hooves on a gravel road, not a ‘ding’, meant a message was arriving
When things took time, when nothing was instantaneous, when we relied on our own selves to fill the lulls – to read, to write, to draw, to stare at nothing and daydream in silence
There are too many options, too much noise, so much stuff!
The need to acquire more things can’t be satiated
I try to simplify, declutter, compartmentalize my stuff, my thoughts, my life
But I need to do it over and over
The white noise, dinging tablets, vibrating phones is a constant distraction
A force that pulls my mind away from what matters
A beckoning to come and see what I might be missing
And when I finally give in there is no satisfaction
There is only regret when I notice I missed nothing – just like I knew, but couldn’t let go
Feeling like a fool I vow to simplify my life
But know how the cycle goes
And do what I can to minimize the distraction as I try to live my life
