The Intermediate Step
#5
Sean,
Sustaining my attention on detail feels like remaining present to me, not letting my mind wander away from the task at hand. I'm getting better at this, for longer periods, but I'm not sure if it's my default yet. Like anything I want to get better at, it is taking constant repeated practice. Am I here now? Do I want to keep doing what I'm doing? If I look at pictures of me as a child behind those thick glasses I look so trapped, with a dull dead stare -- I probably couldn't wait to escape to be by myself. Now I am spending more of my time doing what I want to do and enjoying it, even if it's chores. I think people with good visual habits probably have more joy in their lives.

David, I haven't commented on this post yet because I agree with it and didn't have much to add beyond praise for taking your back problem into your own hands instead of submitting to a doctor or drug. In my energy medicine studies I'm running into so many people who just want to suppress symptoms and go on as usual, not wanting to accept that it's a message from their body (like blur is!) that something needs to change. Good work, and thanks for being such a stellar example.
