A swinging pendulum has a grace to it. A simple, predictable, quiet efficiency. The RRU experience has pulled my bob to the full end of the period. The pauses are what I notice more- when the bob reaches the end of the amplitude and rests for a moment before swinging back. In that pause there is a moment of timelessness. I am learning to use that moment of redirection to listen. To observe. To change my vision. To clear away the distractions. Because I don't get another pause for a while. So, best to make it a good one, and to anticipate the next.
