Living in the now

In which I live in the now.

That day I got raptured

Living in the past is boring (as I already know the story), and living in the future is a waste of time (because you always hype it up and become disappointed at the result). If you really want to live then exist in the now, it’s where all the cool stuff is happening.

Earlier I was in Ikea, and later I’ll be in bed but for the moment I am in front of the television building in Minecraft. See, isn’t life just so Rock and/or Roll when you have all you diems carped?

Sitting here is no different from most other Saturday evenings, the pictures on the screen may change but it’s still my derrière on the sofa.

I may be accused of wasting my life, why am I not outside and doing something more? More active, more rewarding, more creative? Right now I can’t think of anything worse than being more than what I am doing now. More is what I have spent the week at work doing, more was looking after a rebellious toddler in a flat pack warehouse.

Less is indeed more, and less is what I am doing now. Being less than what I am is recharging my batteries. A mobile phone recharges quicker when it is not being used and that is precisely what I am doing at this moment in time. I am recharging.

I’m being so lazy that my foot is uncomfortable. My lower limb is in this predicament because of the tea that is soaked into the sock, tea that would otherwise be in a pool on the floor but my foot is being utilised as a mop.

It is damp, and cold, and that is not just the weather outside. I can see the rain dripping down the windows because I have accepted that to have more privacy I would be spending less time on the settee, and I am not going to commit to that. Instead I will sit here and let the world judge me.

I am sitting here doing nothing, and whatever others may think I am happy with this choice.

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.

    1. I have a few friends who are go, go, go and it is exhausting. I think Me and Mrs G are similar in our down time habits and it works great. Tonight she has played Minecraft while I was on my laptop and we just chilled out. The most activity was making the sandwiches for tomorrow’s lunch…so there is a pile of washing to be put away, but we’ll get to it when we get to it!

      1. Glad the two of you have the same thinking! I’m particularly bothered by people who keep their kids going, going, going without a chance to let the brain recharge — I think it’s going to catch up with them.

      2. We let the Feliciraptor play by herself, I don’t think it does any good to have their lives dictated to them…how do they learn to be independent if they are instructed on how to have fun?
