I learned something about myself the other day. I mean, it really sank in. It was an insight.
I was running the vegetable juicer when Heaven Admin came in with groceries! I went over to the opposite counter that the bags of groceries were on and pulled out each item and oohed and aahed over each one. "Ginger root! Spinach! Carrots! Eggs..."
Meanwhile, Heaven Admin calmly came over and turned off the juicer.
I had totally forgotten about it. My whole attention was on the groceries.
You realize that this happens sometimes, once in a whle, when I'm rinsing dishes, for example.
Something interrupts, and I'm gone. I totally forget that the water's running. It's totally out of my consciousness. When the new delight is done, then I would turn back and am astonished to see the water still running. I would go back to the sink saying out loud:
"Holy moly, I left the water running."
I don't think this means I'm ADD. It doesn't, does it?
I'm not irresponsible. Yet, what is this?
It would be nice if this meant I'm truly being in the moment, but I don't think that's quite it.
Okay, I don't seem to be able to do two things at once. Does that mean that I flit?
I am a child. This is what children do. I know it says somewhere to be like the little child, but this is not what the speaker had in mind.
So, what to do, what to do?
Does anyone else ever have this?
