It just occurred to me, while I was trying to catch up on stuff around the house, what a strange existence we are forced to live. I was berating myself as usual for being so unorganized and never accomplishing much that anyone else can see (and I can remember) when it hit me: OF COURSE our minds are fragmented: we have to do things in fragments! If we keep following the same train of thought, we will be sitting in one position too long, or walking up and down the stairs too many times in a row, or lifting too many dishes, or pushing too many groceries, or wiping too many surfaces, or whatever; repetetive movements are dangerous for us. We have to vary what we do so often that no wonder our minds can't stay on the same track for any length of time. It's actually amazing that we persevere and get anything done at all!!
I think this is why I flee to the shopping mall more often than I even want to: there, I can walk out of the cold and wind, and I can clear my mind of all the competing tasks vying for my attention. I can get away from: dirt, dust, animal hair, decisions about
my parents' papers, our papers, dirty dishes, clothes that need to go somewhere else, etc. etc. Until, of course, I crawl back in, sore from too much standing
