Vegetarian Minestrone Soup

soup

I’ve been practicing my staring technique.  Staring at a blinking cursor on a blank screen; staring at a cooling mug of coffee; staring at raindrops traveling down the kitchen window; staring at the television.

“I should bake,” I think, but can’t even manage that.

I’m lingering before a crossroads, staring at divergent paths mere steps ahead. I cannot walk towards any one direction, on a road to any outcome.  I’m weary. I want to rest a while, here in the center of the road, and just stare towards an unknown.

My brain was not meant to process all this.
