      Awesome read! When you are distracted, write about distraction. When you are bored, write about boredom. Read, Write, Repeat! :)

        Reminds me of mom, Pegeen. We could never just get her out the door to the market!

      Fun quick read! Almost quaint with the magazine baskets and looking up answers in books. Self-distraction in the pre-smartphone era.

      Meditation...... Breath and slow the heck down... Or not!
      A funny and quick little gem.
