just one thing at a time

one of the many things i love about being at the cabin for an extended period of time is how well i can focus on whatever it is i am doing. everything is simple in dark cove. no electricity. no running water (except at the brook). what i do is often dictated by the weather. the amount of light. the length of the day. i bring work with me - spinning, embroidery etc. and while i'm working, that's all i'm doing. i bring books. and while i'm reading, that's all i'm doing. i'm not distrated by the computer, by the phone, by a knock on the door. i'm not thinking "i should be doing this, i should be taking care of this, i should be getting this off in the mail" i'm only doing what i'm doing. it's so easy to clear my mind and focus.

Sounds like the ideal place to be to get things done. But only for a while. I like my home comforts of running water, electricity, internet etc.
