whenever i find myself sitting idle, i long to grab a fragment and needle chant a while. i don't always act on those longings these days. sometimes i breathe into the idleness and just sit with it. relaxing and simply being. i know, for me, this can be an escape. from what, i'm not certain. so i remind myself how fulfilling the needle and thread can be. allow it to become the meditation that it can be. to that end, i found myself stitching away at my little purple bunny this evening.
