Following my move to Kendal, the boxes have gradually been unpacked, and I have had to find new places to put things.
I discovered that it is vital to get the large things in places first, then fit the smaller things around them.
If gravel, the small things, gets put into a jar first, there is no easy way to make room for larger stones. Put the stones into the jar first, and the gravel can slip in around the gaps. A bit like life – it is easy to fill time with busyness yet not feel any satisfaction or achievement. Take time to put the stones, the large structures, in place first, then the extras can fill the gaps.
There is a story along those lines which might follow next month – it includes coffee!
