~Thought for the Week~
~Thought for the Week~
Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering.
~Pooh's Little Instruction Book (inspired by A.A. Milne)

Lovely thought. Nice blog. I will stop by again.
Is that our family motto or what? Another great quote babe and fetching shot of the one and only BoBo. Love you.

Gale: why, thank you! twice, in fact! ; ) xox
Honey: yup, just like on Seinfeld, our lives are often about doing a whole lot of "nuttin'"... and loving it! that said, i LOVELOVELOVE YOU, even more! xoxo
CJ: not sure when you'd have time to do "nothing", sweet friend, what with 3 kids, 2 dogs, that hunky hubby, and, well, all that other stuff you do! : ) xox
Nessa: hopefully this quote explains many of the posts i do on the Snark. i write what i "know" -- glad you can relate! heh heh. ; ) xox

Oooh! Delish quote indeed and oh so true... though I have to sneak in short moments of doing nothing into busy days but, you know, it makes a WORLD of difference FO SHO!
And it brought to mind a wonderful book I read oh so long ago when still a child... makes me want to read it again but, alas, it's packed...
I will not mention the title for methinks you might like it! *grins*
A faboo quote my dearest and most amazing and utterly loved, LOVED I TELL YOU, of amigas! Mil besos and oh how I hope you are back in fighting form with no more antibiotics on the horizon for you!
MWAH from one who misses you mucho!

What a good way to do no harm.
10 June 2007 at 06:34 PM
Unfortunately, I'm just a little bit too good at that one.
10 June 2007 at 08:35 PM
Cute quote, good doggie.
On the other hand, you shouldn't over-estimate its value, either.
11 June 2007 at 08:39 AM
Heh! That would be me, the Great Doing-Nothing-Girl. Better yet if I can do nothing with a nice glass of wine and a doggie at my feet.
It's harder that it sounds, really. It takes patience and centredness to just be, confidence that all is right, and a faith that what's nothing today may just be everything tomorrow.
Lovely words, Neva. As always :-)

You have pegged my mood and daytime plan precisely! Today, (although I'll be attempting to sit at my desk and look like I'm working) I shall actually be doing nothing - just going along... :-D Yes, I'm back as of a few short hours ago (was it last night?) Today after waking up at 2 a.m., I wonder why the world is so dark!

Miz B: short moments of doing "nothing" make gettin' back to the doing of "something" easier. at least that's what i think. of course, sometimes i get so carried away with "nothing" i forget to do "anything" ! d'oh! much love and MANY besos to you, too, dearest amiga!! ; ) xox
Jan: most of the time, i'm pretty sure that's true! ; ) xox
Schnoodlepooh: me, too! : ) xox
Al: spoken like a boss. heh heh. ; )
GG: sweet GG, i think you just elevated this concept, big time! such profundity from such a tiny -yet-good girl! : ) xox
Terry: hahaha. i figured as much! nothing like getting back from a glamorous vacation in all parts "Italy" to make you want to stay in bed and dream about the amazing time you just had! barely set foot and/or swollen ankle on American soil and already back behind a desk. ouch.
glad you're home, safe and sound, my friend! : ) xox

i always thought doing nothing was quite something
12 June 2007 at 12:21 PM
I think doing nothing is vastly underrated - I do it as often as I can (which isn't often enough according to my true nature). XOX

When it rains I can do nothing perfectly
12 June 2007 at 10:41 PM
Now if I could just get paid doing it...nothing, that is.
13 June 2007 at 02:05 PM
"Doing nothing"...I haven't done that for so long that I don't even remember how. Whenever I try, one of my kids comes along to make sure I don't, but I love not doing nothing with them, so I guess that's all right.

Going with the tide...that sounds nice about now. I am tired of swimmming upstream. I need some Taoism in a bad way. Thank you for the wonderful quote!

I do nothing with the best of them!
14 June 2007 at 09:09 PM
there's a lot to be said for doing nothing. Its a rare and beautiful thing :-)

Pooh, there is much wisdom is fuzzy bears. And I absolutely agree: Just be, is one of the most pleasurable things and hardest things to accomplish.
I vote for Winnie as head yoga instructor!

I think Pooh would recommend humming while going along.
