One of my favorite things about not having a job is being home for lunch. Yesterday I made braised swiss chard and quinoa. Today I made a huge bowl salad with Boston lettuce, feta, turkey bacon, avocado, tomato and red onion. It was really good.
I met up with some friends during the afterwork hour tonight to attend a meditation circle. I’ve sat with this group three times now, and each time has been lovely. The sensation of being intentionally quiet with a room full of people all doing the same is charged and heady. I find myself looking forward to the group each week with the same level of desire and anticipation I feel when I’m preparing for a trip home to Portland. Luckily, meditation doesn’t cost nearly as much as a plane ticket.
