The Country of the Present Moment

Unmitigated profusion

On a late afternoon whim in between bringing in laundry, feeding the chickens and starting dinner, I gathered sunflowers and put them in a vase. Total and complete pleasure flooded through me. I am aware of how lucky I am to be able to concentrate for a few minutes on the vase of flowers, blocking out the blankets airing from flea infestation, the weeds over running the patio, the peeling paint on the house, the bills, the need for a new furnace, my family’s lack of health insurance, etc etc etc etc….

Momentary Bliss
