quietly noticing.

I need to pay more attention. We all do. The great human thing (you may call it a failing or an opportunity, as you like) is that we do not notice our lives, the moments passing by, sparkling full of shining magic stuff if we can just manage to engage ourselves, pop into that flowing awareness. Some weeks ago I found myself distant and spaced out, checking in only for work and aikido, both fine distractions as I dodged my various relationship issues and whatever else bothers me. I started coming back, seeing a bit of what's going on with me.

That's really it. My life now boils down to work, aikido, spending time with my friends, and looking to buy a house in one area or another. It's so simple and rich, it's wonderful. All I have to do is be myself.

Next up: write about something besides me.
