Blurtso the donkey

Harlan was talking a lot about mindfulness yesterday. I wonder what he meant? I wonder if it’s anything like stomachfulness? I’ll have to ask him the next time I see him, if I’m not too focused on the present to remember.

Blurtso the donkey

Occasionally, I free my mind to the day, I feel the sounds, the colors, the breeze, and I remember this day, which is every day, a lifetime.
