So many thoughts come to mind when I recall this quote. 'Be all there.' Be fully present? Be intentional? Be mindful? I want to be all these things. I look back to the start of it. 'Wherever you are.' It reminds me how I often stretch myself too thin. I dip my feet into too many ponds, chase too many ideas, get distracted by ever increasing tangents. That's the entire premise of this site I suppose. Reverie essentially means 'to get lost in ones own thoughts.' I get lost in all sorts of things. I get lost in music, writing, people, places. I'm wondering if having an outlet to write about them, post photos about them, process them, will help sort it all out. My thoughts, my many states of reverie are at the very least as vast as the shells in this bowl. [just in case you're wondering, I haven't counted. I'm betting at least a hundred. Give or take. Now all I can think of is finding this damn bowl, laying every shell out and quantifying each and every last one.] Tune in next week when Jo counts shells! [kidding...I hope]
'But I am letting myself be carried away by reveries which I must now put aside.'
-Jules Verne, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
