04/01/2003 Entry: ""Do nothing and there is nothing you cannot do.""

As far as April Fool's goes, this was a quiet one. Oddly quiet. No clowns jumping out of lunchboxes, no mad fishmonger-esque rains of mackeral, no overt works of sorcery nor did misleading portents bop me in the face. If anything, the solitude and the tacit turning of time could be the biggest joke of all.

I don't know what to do, but that's alright. Soon enough my life will be a whirlwind of nonstop stimuli and strange, new and wonderful adventures in a land far away. Watching the cats chase eachother around, listening to the birds sing down the sun, stretching my legs under the desk and eating yogurt while reading up on various blogospheric memes is just fine for me right now. There's all kinds of things in my Coulda/Shoulda folder, in fact it's bulging with unvisited possibilities, but I feel perfectly justified with taking the peaceful, easy feeling that I'm being handed. It's a luxury that seldom is on sale in my store of days.

As the Zen Koan goes, "Do nothing and there is nothing you cannot do."

So from this point, from this lull, things will intensify, and that's just peachy, sans pits. I sometimes wish these ubiquitous things would just do themselves (especially dishes), but without a foundation in telekinesis I'm left to the old fashioned method of actually accomplishing tasks via effort and action, which is fair trade for existing in the first place.

At times like this, when the stars are slow to rise and the clock is caught snoozing, it's best to remember that procrastination isn't the enemy of progress, but rather it's lusty mistress that like things slow in coming.
