"A mind too active is no mind at all."
Many days I think my doofus dog has it right.
Occasionally ask for a scratch under the chin.
No self-imposed deadlines to meet. No sense of obligation or overblown feelings of responsibility. No need to feel productive.
"The most potent muse of all is our own inner child." (Stephen Nachmanovitch)
Eat. Sleep. Play.
I think I'll do all three of those this week. And I'll scratch Doofus under the chin in thanks.
