My ‘experiment’ in living here is going well, but of course has its challenges. Actually the challenge is that age old one of being conscious of living in the present. I seem to be able to step outside myself enough to recognize this two week time period here as my life right now, not something separate, not a vacation, not better (just different) from any other two weeks.
No matter where I am living, writing this blog is one of the current being-in-the-present consistencies in my life. But then I wonder about my dependency on wifi and my computer. I don’t like to consider technology as a life-line for me, but maybe it is--although not in the spiritual category. Rather, it is one of life’s placeholders, along with morning coffee, driving a car, going to church, and other necessities and mechanism that give form to the rituals of my life.
