“There are two ways to look at the world: as though everything is a miracle or as if nothing is a miracle.” – Einstein
I love the idea of rituals, but sometimes I find it hard to really put them into practice. Lately, I’ve been determined to talk with my parents on the phone more. Living across the country from them, I sometimes feel disconnected and would love to find a way to catch up more frequently. Having recently started driving to work, I would like one of my rituals be calling my parents during my 30 minute commute. I’ve tried it a few times and with my new earbud, hands-free set-up it’s worked really well. While at other times I feel like I easily get distracted or feel rushed during our conversations, when in the car driving to or from work, I can completely (well, aside from the whole driving thing) focus on our conversation and find that our communication is much richer and deeper.
