Everything Taking Too Long

Life is short – and then you die.

WASHINGTON—An overwhelming sense of restlessness and impatience engulfed the U.S. this week when citizens determined that everything—the morning commute, phone conversations, getting a table at Chili’s, making coffee, commercial breaks, everything—was taking entirely too long.

This piece from the Onion kind of nails it.

Hat tip to Corey.

I had a wonderful weekend leading the “Buddha and Body” retreat at Kripalu Center.  About ten minutes after the program ended I hopped in the car and made my way to Connecticut for our annual meditation festival at Watering Pond Yoga hosted by my dear friends Dorothy and Michael.  After a wonderful gathering, a great meal and a good sleep I headed back down to DC in pouring rain in the morning.  The tension of driving in such driving rain kicked in a headache which led to a migraine.

I’m grateful for those rest areas on the New Jersey turnpike and for a car (Honda Element) which can be converted into a nap zone.  In the midst of the rain and a free floating migraine I found myself entranced by this image of rain falling on the sunroof.  Kind of trippy.
