COVID has slowed us down tremendously or has it?
I watched my dog sit in front of our patio door yesterday. He sat still watching whatever he saw for minutes. He didn’t move. He just stared.
I watched him and during that time all thoughts of everything faded. I didn’t think of how many more assignments I had to grade or what I was going to cook for dinner. I didn’t think of the crazy shit our President continues to say. I didn’t wonder why certain states were reopening or why crazy folks are protesting. I stopped thinking about that political leader who wore a mask of the confederate flag.
I stopped thinking about the dumb posts from educators who I see throughout Twitter. I stopped thinking about my previous post about issues I’ve discussed.
I just watched him and realized that in order to gain peace, we also need to learn to be still…in our minds too!
