I pasted this quote from poet Jane Kenyon on my bathroom mirror to remind me of her good advice. Last week I went to painting class and forgot my phone. I didn’t even notice I wasn’t plugged in to the other outer world.

Be a good steward of your gifts. Protect your time. Feed your inner life. Avoid too much noise. Read good books, have good sentences in your ears. Be by yourself as often as you can. Walk. Take the phone off your hook. Work regular hours. (from A Hundred White Daffodils)
