My favorites: Activities

I don’t think of myself as an active person. There isn’t much I do. There isn’t much I enjoy doing. I more often find myself in a state rather than engaged in an act.

I can name the following forms of activity that bring me genuine pleasure:

  • Walking (by which I mean “going for a walk”)
  • Dreaming
  • Calmly observing:
    • Bare shapes
    • Colors
    • Lights
    • Gentle sounds
    • Plants and trees moving in the wind
    • Flowing water
    • The water’s surface rippled by the wind
    • Sunlight reflecting on the water’s surface
    • Clouds
    • The Moon
    • The view from my window
  • Swimming in open water
