It's weird, being forced to slow down like that at random intervals throughout the day. I have nothing but my thoughts and the sound of the child whispering in my ear about BART trains. There's no computer, no blackberry, no rushing around trying to get stuff done, I just sit there with my beautiful child on top of me. It's probably not something I would ever do if he wasn't sitting on me, and just now I was thinking about how unusual it was for me to just sit and do nothing.
Try it sometimes, just sitting and doing nothing. Turn off the TV if you keep it on, no music, no computer, don't talk, just think.
