Being tired has at least one benefit. It forces you to approach things more slowly, more deliberately. If i were a cell phone i would be at least 1 or 2 bars. Today, I have a singular kind of attention. When rested, i have 10 different kinds of attention, 10 different ways to receive information. Intelligence is not receptivity, i think. Intelligence is the ability to filter what is necessary,to simplify information. In that there is a kind of lean, deductive elegance. I’m reminded of this today. I’m tired but it’s not the kind of tired that feels like a drain. It is the kind of slow awareness of my body in the world. Held in the hands of another.I think you will agree that this is a great way to be.
