Reverb day 20: 42 (not actually ready)

Today, I invite you to think about the great unknowns in your life right now. Say to yourself this morning: “I am open to the answers finding me”. Then stay alert with as many senses as you can.

In what form did the answers find you?

I was thinking about The Hitch-hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy this morning. It has some things to say about answers. After that, it has some things to say about questions.

That might be the answer. I don’t know. I’m not really sure what the question is. So I shall just note down:

Some things I noticed today:

  • the charge for home delivery for items from one particular shop: £3.95
  • a delivery bike coming over the bridge
  • that carrying a large, heavy box home is very hard on the shoulders and the fingers

Or what about this?

  • Yesterday I used the last lavender Earl Grey teabag.
  • Today I opened the box of Christmas tea that my mother didn’t want.

Since we’re talking about Christmas, in this morning’s veg box there were:

  • potatoes
  • brussels sprouts
  • carrots
  • parsnips
  • satsumas (!)
  • apples
  • red cabbage

Tomorrow I need to buy:

  • brandy
  • icing sugar
  • turkey escalopes
  • bacon
  • sausagemeat
  • wine
  • onions
  • plain flour
  • butter

and that will easily fit into two pannier bags.

In fact,

  • I am pretty much ready for Christmas

But:

  • I slept until a quarter to nine, and
  • I could very well have had a nap after lunch, and
  • I’m really quite sleepy now.

Do you know, I’m not sure that I am open to the answers finding me today. I think they’re waiting until I’m actually ready to do something with them. And what’s particularly interesting is that I’m fine with this. I don’t want massive progress right this minute. I’m still catching up with myself. I need some more space. So, I suspect, do the answers.
