Saturday Morning

clouds

Still looking for bliss in nothing at all, the cloudy mind moving over existence, outside time.

Patricia HamplThe Art of the Wasted Day (Published April 17, 2018)


Notes:

  • Post Inspired by Patricia Hampl: “Daydreaming doesn’t make things up. It sees things. Claims things, twirls them around, takes a good look. Possesses them. Embraces them. Makes something of them. Makes sense. Or music. How restful it is, how full of motion. My first paradox. I couldn’t care less what it’s called. It’s pure pleasure. Infinite delight…This is what is called the life of the mind. It’s what I want to do. It’s where I want to be. Right here.” (Patricia Hampl, The Art of the Wasted Day)

    The photo brings to mind, a head in the clouds and I wonder what it must be like for you, as you are often physically soaring through the clouds, in the air- o- dynamic, aluminum chariot …does your mind maunder, while thoughts form for your next pen…, are you drifting in and out of cat napping, are you scanning emails…,are you curious about a seat mate…, are you grateful for some time to rest your eyes…,are you thinking of a Texas Man Sized Steak dinner complete with Mint chocolate ice cream or a slice of cheese cake, are you contemplating a swim in the Hotel pool, is it a Monday and your thinking of how you wish it was Friday? ///and i think I didn’t use “your” incorrectly… 🙂

    • Smiling. Christie, in short hand, not curious, hard time resting eyes, and mind never far from food. Like

      “Here’s Pavarotti copied from an interview somewhere: ‘One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.'”
