Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Music Monday! Afternoons & Coffeespoons

'Times when the day is like a play by Sartre
When it seems a book burning's in perfect order'...


As I sit and stare at the boxes in the basement, living room, and piles of stuff throughout the house, at least I have this peppy tune to make light of the situation.

I am prepping for a yard sale, compiling piles of our things that we no longer need or want. Add to that about 20 boxes of books just picked up at an auction, and I wholeheartedly agree with the lyrics posted at the beginning. A book burning may just be a good idea!
A few of the boxes
But no, these were bought in the hopes of re-selling to make a wee bit of money to actually help us in our move. The reality is that this is a task I am quite overwhelmed with. I love books, but this is ridiculous! 

'Too much of a good thing can be taxing', as Mae West said.
A few more of the boxes
If I had the time, it would be great to sort through, scan some, and read others, If I had time to wear pajamas in the daytime, and measure afternoons with coffee spoons, I would do just that. 
But, sadly, that luxury seems so far off.
And even  more of the boxes
Back to pricing, sorting, and gearing up for a humungous yard sale, with GREAT DEALS on some very interesting and hard to find books! 

I hope people show up.

  1. Oh man, you're made of stronger stuff than I am. I'd have a hard time not diving into all those books!

  2. Hubby's job, not mine. Although he picked out a few he thought I would like, and I reluctantly agreed. We will be adding a few to our already large personal collection.
    You just can't help it, can you?

  3. We have so many books. It IS ridiculous. But Jordan absolutely refuses to get rid of books. Sometimes I get rid of them when he's not looking. Don't tell! :)

    1. Good for you! How do you DO it? Does he not notice? Or just not yet....
      Thankfully, hubby has agreed to put all but a few of them out for our yard sale.
