Stillness

Tuesday, June 30, 2015

As I came down from the mountain, I recalled how, not many years ago, it was access to information and movement that seemed our greatest luxury; nowadays it’s often freedom from information, the chance to sit still, that feels like the ultimate prize. Stillness is not just an indulgence for those with enough resources—it’s a necessity for anyone who wishes to gather less visible resources.

A Pause

Friday, June 26, 2015

Today a fellow blogger remarked that I’ve stopped blogging. Have I? I think not. It’s simply a pause in my incessant interior monologue.  The cynic in me thinks that nobody’s interested in what I write about or whether I write at all so why bother?  But my love for writing triumphs and here I am typing these words, trying to string words together once again.
