Yesterday's stillness was to pick one of 75 pleasures and  

take time to enjoy it. Show us in a photo

Well I did a few of those things yesterday, but I don't think I paid much heed. I had a better chance this afternoon. A walk, a seat beside the loch, a wee bit of stillness.

I have become a bit more aware about how I am skipping by these chances to quickly. 

I am finding the daily stillness almost always interesting. I don't always respond publicly, sometimes I am too busy, sometimes I want to keep my response to myself. I am particularly enjoying the recycling of the exercises. 

I am reminded of Jin Shengtan's list of 33 happy moments, I've just found these on tumblr but I read them ia an old secondhand book  many years ago.

13.

It has been raining for a whole month and I lie in bed in the morning like one drunk or ill, refusing to get up. Suddenly I hear a chorus of birds announcing a clear day. Quickly I pull aside the curtain, push open a window and see the beautiful sun shining and glistening and the forest looks like it has had a bath.

Ah, is this not happiness?
