Andrew writes... I've hit that spell again. That engine, that revving sound that indicates restlessness. The feeling that I should be doing something (more?), that I am responsible to make a difference. It's like being on the front foot all the time - I have more trouble sitting down, too much forward thinking. Forward! Do! Head! Yet when I stop to reflect on what God may be saying in the midst of this: lie down in the green grass, sink down and feel the cool blades pass your cheek. Lie back. Hmm, what is most authentic? Why does the latter seem not enough? I'd like to get better at noticing the signs that indicate the existence of this tussle. I'm now thinking about the mantra Down! Be! Heart!
