The conversation between my body and mind is often confrontational (more exercise, less exercise, more rest or more work, more reading, etc.) but, in general, I find it easy to agree with one or the other. For some time now, however, I have had more difficulty knowing which of the two should prevail and I wonder if these two will ever be able to agree and let me get on with my life. It should not be that difficult, though, the kereru at the botanical garden seems to know without even asking itself.

For a long time, I felt the weight of past events and decisions on my shoulders but then realised that if the past cannot be changed the narrative surrounding it has the power to make it a lot lighter.

Doors. Always imagining what's behind. Desire to dig into what life is made of, rather than an urge to know what's going on with the neighbours. Public benches. Always want to read about the unknown indivual or unrelated event it was erected at this place for. Same desire to explore the invisible.
In all honesty, doesn't really exist, right? To be completely honest, we should include our shadow (according to Jung), and that we cannot, not in public anyway. We try, therefore, we try, as best we can.
