Wisdom by Hindsight
I am a past master at that kind of doing nothing. How about you?
So that is what I have been doing all these years in retirement! Works for me. Stay safe my friend.
YES! and i love the whole world of Winnie the Pooh.
That is another thing that we have in common. I have loved Pooh for decades.
We quoted that to each other on our recent vacation: “We all need to work at the fine art of doing nothing.” It’s spellbinding.
It is an artform WWW. Very pleasing to the practitioner.
I wouldn’t say I do nothing but certainly now I’m retired I do “nothing in particular”. I might be doing something useful like housework but then again I might be just sitting staring into space. I remember from my schooldays that a favourite response of pupils when the teacher asked “What are you doing?” was “Nothing, Miss” (or Nothing Sir).
Exactly what this cartoon has caught so well. I don’t think that Milne ever grew up.
I do a whole of nothing as well, often – often it’s lying on my bed, under the covers and just staring into space – this particularly in the early hours of the morning, before even daylight has appeared – but of late because I seem particularly unwell, more often a lot of the actual morning, other trips to the kitchen or similar… And I’m starting to feel less guilty about it all, as long as I get the general household chores done…I’m all good. Yes it would be nice to make a little art, that will return soooooooon.
Welcome to the club Catherine. You are actually more of the doing type than the doing nothing type like me.
My Father used to say that ‘NOTHING’ was impossible.
He would go on to say that ‘I’ve been doing that for Years’
Yes, I remember him saying that to me as well. His sense of humour was of a different level.
I, too, am quite adept at doing nothing and enjoying it.
Welcome to the club Joared.
