'on not doing much'


are you away for half-term
no, we are at home
any special plans
no not really
i start to think
it was much too auspicious
to hope get through
with our collective sanity still intact
while planning not to plan too much
reassured by a timely TED talk
i thought of it as weeklong mindset boot camp
to slow down
to embrace the empty time
to laud the natural highs
(accepting plenty natural lows whom am i kidding)
we survived and i think even enjoyed it
mostly and with daily mental effort
redefining how we interpret the experience
all hail neuroplasticity
and its habit changing powers
thank goodness it was only one week long
