My first recipe for happiness: avoid too lengthy meditation on the past.
– André Maurois

Today I am thrilled by seeing one of my best friends put on an amazing one-man show. It’s called Under the Lintel and is about an ex-librarian who went off the deep end when someone returns a library book that was checked out over 100 years earlier. If you live near Grove, Oklahoma, try to check it out.

I seriously over-think. I have spoken about it before. I also know there are times when I get focused on a project. I don’t get distracted. I need to stop for breaks. I don’t snack. Time just passes until the project is completed.

But I can’t capture these experiences at will. I know I need to meditate more. I know it will help me improve my concentration.
