Man, today was like hitting the reset button on my soul.
I went to a Gnostic Eucharist (first time in years).
I had some great coffee at an awesome little mom and pop joint.
Wandered around in a cool neighborhood, and checked out a local farmers market, where I had some awesome BBQ ribs and Korean seaweed. The smells of all of the fresh produce and flowers there were incredible.
I walked a labyrinth (kind of a walking meditation), and then went to my secret sanctuary (also hadn’t been there in years) where there’s a little fountain in a quiet little place surrounded by trees and shade, and I literally just sat there in the silence by myself for about an hour - not thinking.
I drove around a little with the A/C on and listened to the “Into the Wild” soundtrack. (Cheesy? Maybe, but it was just for me, and it was perfect. Fuck it all.)
I had some more great coffee at a different place across town.
There’s no way to explain how much I needed this.
I’m always on the go trying to get sh*t done. I’m constantly goal-oriented and trying to be efficient.
I feel like a new man.
I think I found my new Sunday ritual.
