When You're ...
Thich Nhat Hanh, a Buddhist monk/poet/activist/teacher, once wrote a piece about mindfulness that has inspired and influenced me greatly - even as I struggle to live by his words. To paraphrase: When you're washing the dishes, be washing the dishes. Be present in that moment.
So I extrapolated from that. And since one of my 50/90 goals is to re-learn my once-competent banjo picking, here's my first banjo song of this 50/90.
When you’re making your tea be making your tea (2x)
Don’t be thinking ‘bout what may be
When you’re washing a dish be washing a dish (2x)
Don’t be thinking ‘bout your birthday wish
When you’re filling a glass be filling a glass (2x)
Don’t be thinking ‘bout how all things pass
When you’re tying your shoe be tying your shoe (2x)
Don’t be thinking ‘bout all you got to do
When you’re combing your hair be combing your hair (2x)
Be aware, be here, not there
When you’re eating a peach, be eating a peach
Still trying to learn what I teach (2x)
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
