the stonemason…

“The wisdom of the journeyman is to work one day at a time and he always said that any job even if it took years was made up out of a day’s work. Nothing more. Nothing less. That was hard for me to learn. I always wanted to be finished.

In the concept of a day’s work is a pace and wholeness. To make the world. To make it again and again. To make it in the very maelstrom of its undoing.” Cormac McCarthy, The Stonemason

How long has it been

since you simply rocked that chair or swung on the porch swing. It is a means toward slowly feeling your pace slacken and the swinging or rocking becoming less energized. A  slow rhythm that eases the mind down notch by notch…to a gentle place.

Life’s Pace & Our Awareness of What?

How often the mind is dancing about in some frenetic manner. If only we could slow down and enjoy. If only there was less going on and the pace slowed. Then what? Sometimes the pace slows a lot and the to do list evaporates. Suddenly you realize that it may not just be the pace. It may be a disconnection within regardless of the pace. Images like the one below are, for me, far beyond the visual beauty or composition. For me it elicits calmness and hopefully self reflection to be a better person. If I take the time to self reflect in honesty.

“Slow down and enjoy life. It’s not only the scenery you miss by going too fast–you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.”  Eddie Cantor

“In truth I suspect that merely slowing down is not a very satisfying answer. What I need has less to do with my pace of life than my peace of life. At any speed, I crave a deep and lasting inner peace. And if it’s solace I’m after, I don’t need to pace myself like a turtle, change jobs or set up house on a quiet island. It is usually frenetic living, not high energy, that robs my peace of mind.”   Steve Goodier
