The return home, post-vacation, presented its usual challenges, not least the fragmentation and scattering of my attention in a dozen directions. I am working on recentering, even as I once again pick up all those neglected obligations.

Attention, in fact, is part of what I’m working on in revising Generous Thinking right now, and I’ve run into a puzzle in the process: http://kfitz.info/generosity-and-attention/

I made the mistake of going outside for about 90 seconds to deadhead a peony and pull a couple of weeds, and got utterly swarmed by mosquitos. Who completely ignored my partner.

Replying to @dancohen

When I post an Aside on WP, it cross posts to http://micro.blog and from there to Twitter. When I post on micro, it cross posts to Twitter and to WP as an Aside. \(The category bit is about creating a rule that prevents cross posts from being emailed to subscribers, too\.\)
