The Sunshine Observer: SO… V:71

Practical Life

Today was a mixed bag of activities. We voted, surveyed the property for what needs doing, harvested a few things, sighed at the industrial strengthen kale, and washed the new silverware.

As I was drying the new set, I wondered how often people use both a salad and dinner fork for everyday dining. If we were to start again what should the modern table setting look like? I might have to do a survey.

Over the summer I listened to the book “Atomic Habits” by James Clear. It’s a practical guide for reaching goals by making tiny changes to our habits. He uses stories, psychology, and neuroscience to explain things, making it easy to grok. One of his premises is to start by just showing up. Even if its just putting on sneakers if your goal is to start jogging.


Onto our 5-minute meditation following the phases of the Moon.

The waxing Moon increases in light moving toward crescent. On Sunshine Lane, the Moon rises at 11:21 am 122⁰ ESE, and sets at 8:16 pm 236⁰ WSW.
