The baby was asleep.
I couldâ€™ve been sending e-mails. Or answering e-mails. Unloading the dishwasher. Calling back people. Sorting through the bills. Writing for fun. Writing for work. Cleaning something. Cleaning anything!
I looked around at all the things I had to do, and I sat on the couch. I didnâ€™t read. I didnâ€™t listen to music. I didnâ€™t use the phone. I just sat on the couch, didnâ€™t do anything else, and turned off my brain.
It was a really good 15 minutes.
I need to do nothing more often.
