Waiting

"Waiting is the in-between time. 
It calls us to be in this moment, this season, 
without leaning so far into the future that we tear our roots from the present. 
When we learn to wait, we experience where we are 
as what is truly substantial and precious in life. 
We discover, as T.S. Eliot wrote, "a lifetime of burning in every moment."' 
- Sue Monk Kidd


I'm in a time of waiting and I'm trying to do it well. 
I'm trying to be in the moment (the long, dragging moment)
Which means my coffee beans are ground, then pressed the french way.


And I drink slowly with the nice mug, and a good book.


And I listen to this song that my cousin Maryl loves.
I listen to it over and over till lumineers fill every corner of my home.


And I contemplate breaking my new years resolution to not buy any clothing,
because I got a few wonderful birthday notes that said "treat yourself"

And I wait.

  2. I realize I could find this out instantly on the googles, but for the sake of conversation ("") - what's the advantage of a french press over a little drop coffee maker? Being relatively new to the world of acceptable addiction, I'm still learning such things. :)

  3. Luv me some Lumineers.

    I know I should love French press, but it always leaves grounds in my coffee, which I find gross, and which means I'm probably doing it wrong. C'est la vie.

    And yeah, I'm in the "treat yourself" camp.
