day 9

An outdoor late-morning sit. A first: setting the timer and settling into position I immediately found stillness. Next step: maintaining it for 30 minutes. A bit of thinking about work, and then a wasp appeared. I’m quite good sitting through insect landings lately, but there was something about the pitch of this buzz that I didn’t love, so I looked and, sure enough – wasp. Would quite like to get a place where wasps don’t faze me either, but hey ho, we’re heading into autumn and winter now so no big deal. And besides, my focus should be on the doing, not the outcome.

Discipline: 5/10.
