December 3, 2008
I raked leaves today. Rather, I helped to bag them. I donít do enough of this. Itís good for me to shift away from the cerebral.

Each day begins with a fire to put out Ė a phone call or an e-mail. I then frenzy my way through the day until I drop from exhaustion.

I donít STOP on my own, to shift gears, to move to another realm. I am inertia.

Todayís activity was extrinsic, this stopping, this leaf bagging.

Extrinsic is good for a person like me. It catches me off guard Ė gets my attention and shifts my momentum.
