just one thing at a time
one of the many things i love about being at the cabin for an extended period of time is how well i can focus on whatever it is i am doing. everything is simple in dark cove. no electricity. no running water (except at the brook). what i do is often dictated by the weather. the amount of light. the length of the day. i bring work with me - spinning, embroidery etc. and while i'm working, that's all i'm doing. i bring books. and while i'm reading, that's all i'm doing. i'm not distrated by the computer, by the phone, by a knock on the door. i'm not thinking "i should be doing this, i should be taking care of this, i should be getting this off in the mail" i'm only doing what i'm doing. it's so easy to clear my mind and focus.
