“When we’re out on a walk and we want to listen for something— a bird, or something in the bushes— what do we naturally do? We stop. We still the self-generated noise that usually surrounds us, so we can better hear what’s going on outside ourselves. So this injunction to stop, stop, stop isn’t one that we only treat as a metaphor; in our daily lives, there’s an embodied aspect to concentration and listening as well. Listening requires slowing down, or being still.” Contemplative Computing
Today take time out in nature to listen to time pass. Just that.
