(Written Tuesday Night 7 Jan 2014)
I discovered that most often I can’t seem to sit still.
Tonight, my mom came to visit me.
We just sat outside.
Enjoying the Summer Evening.
I sensed a battle within me.
There must be something to do.
I got assignments due.
There is always work to do.
But I think in the end, I chose the best thing.
To just be.
Just being present there outside on the stoep (verandah) with my mom.
Sometimes that presence is enough…
