9 july 2020 small things
i am falling back into a state of mind in which everything becomes negative . . . it's not like me to do that . . . it should be like me to find everything becoming good . . . in the way that these words will also become positive . . . simply by attending to small things as did Saint David was said to recommend
while i am eating this kind of rice i am remembering how i came to it or it came to me . . . which was as a product of Clarach Bay where there was a farm which became a piece of food industry . . . and which i have now eaten and broken my unintentional fast . . . which ahah! i can feel these small foods which are called divine rice in a wholy unjustified naming . . . that is the pleasure of eating a bit of luxury food and finding that one is indeed a little bit happier for the eating of it . . .
this is very interesting to me now . . . it shows the small reality of small pleasures . . . even when they are commercialised . . . in a way that one might think to be invalid . . .
