My yoga teacher has been reading this passage to us before class lately, as we sit cross-legged, heads bowed, on our mats. It thrills me every time I hear it.

You don’t have to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait. Remain still and solitary.

The world will freely offer itself to you unmasked. It has no choice. It will roll in ecstacy at your feet.

Franz Kafka

It’s Friday afternoon. Time to wipe down the whiteboards filled with jotted notes + to-dos. Time for quiet, and breathing, and reflection. Time to write.

Happy weekend.
