(She) enjoyed the privilege of stillness, most days did absolutely nothing but breathe and look and hear and smell the world turning.

A self-appointed Judge of Existence.

  4. That’s my role this weekend! Have decided I will not succumb to the ‘weekend before Christmas, ohmygosh gotta shop!!’ pressures, but instead enjoy the days. Wishing you a similarly indolent time, pal. Very glad to hear you’re feeling a bit better. 😁

  5. All grown ups should find a wide grassy place and sit down, lie down, stay for a while in the nothing and everything of it.
