I reentered my apartment today, aware of my closed mouth. I imagined it being closed the rest of the evening. There was once a class project where participants had to stay silent for an entire day at school. Apparently it was supposed to make it easier to concentrate. I wish that were the same with me. I can easily get distracted and make unwise decisions if I don't make a conscious effort to focus my energy on something. But at the same time, sometimes I find myself trying too hard to remain focused, and the joy is lost. Just being.
