All Things Austin
an e-newsletter by christine prater
In this always slightly off-kilter world in which we live, it is easy
to get caught up in "more." We teach ourselves to multi-task so
we can try to get the 200 things on our to-do list checked off,
scratched through, and make room for the next thing. We
surround ourselves with gadgets and people and processes to help
us get it all done so we can live fuller lives and experience more
and be more and have more. Like more is the Holy Grail and if we
can ever get to the big, ultimate MORE, we will have arrived.
