Message from Scott: Washing Bowls

May 18, 2023

Wash your bowls,
Today, right now.
Not tomorrow.

Not when the mood strikes.  
Not when it’s time to cook supper.  
Not when it’s urgent because all the bowls are dirty. 

Not when you’ve finally gotten all your affairs in order. 

Not when you cannot see that the bowls are empty. 
Not when you cannot see that the washing is empty. 
Not when you’re still telling yourself stories about bowl washing. 

Stop everything, and “washing bowls” will fill you up!
