Day 343 December 11, 2013
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field , keeping watch over their flock by night.
And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them; and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not, for behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. -Luke 2:8-11 (KJV)
“Make something boring seem exciting.” -from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin
“Bliss—a-second-by-second joy and gratitude at the gift of being alive, conscious—lies on the other side of crushing, crushing boredom. Pay close attention to the most tedious thing you can find (Tax Returns, Televised Golf) and, in waves, a boredom like you’ve never known will wash over you and just about kill you. Ride these out, and it’s like stepping from black and white into color. Like water after days in the desert. Instant bliss in every atom.” ― David Foster Wallace
“Life is better than death, I believe, if only because it is less boring, and because it has fresh peaches in it.” ― Alice Walker
