“Returning to the source is stillness.”
It has been two weeks since our arrival back and life has been relatively simple. Of course, not having jobs helps with that simplicity, with the only inclusion of some job searching and applications each day, you get nine hours of leisure. Excellent!
What having I been doing, beside Christmas?
- Re-connecting with family and friends
- Doing my portfolio for my Diploma (which I thought I was done with but one of my essays in it was considered done for in preliminary marking and was sent back to me to be re-done).
- Content writing for a friend’s enterprise.
- Tossing and interpreting coins in the I Ching.
- Doing the gardening
- Reading the Art of War
- Not exercising
I had intended to have a period of daily exercise upon coming back. However, inflammation has literally found my Achilles Heel, which three months on has not Healed. Post New Year, I’ll get an expert in to advise me. Twice it has seemed to come right only to relapse completely after modest exertion.
Life is simple, which after twelve of the busiest in my life is a joy. Soon I’ll be pining for the hustle and bustle.
