I know that feeling all too well!
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Poor kid, they ought to just let him take a nap.
“The truth knocks on the door and you say, "Go away, I'm looking for the truth," and so it goes away. Puzzling.” ― Robert M. Pirsig

To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

Dear Plwk,

I love this husband/I laugh! I'm glad that I love walking meditation...I never feel sleepy while walking...I must be sleepy too if I sit meditation.
