Just Stop Oil makes us think as we wait on the M25
You know I like to think I live in the moment? I bore myself with my replies to people which take some variation of that mantra. It is not that I don't mean it, I do, I just suspect they expecting something new.
Some things are the same but new every day. Like this morning I struggled to see the day ahead at a dark 6 am. That feeling is frequent, the same, but it is new today. I have learned to just keep doing what forms part of the morning routine and somehow I find myself driving along the M25.

I was in traffic for almost 2 hours so I had enough time to think about why the protestors were embarking on such action.
I had to use all ‘My in-the-moment exercises’ to stop my brain from becoming impatient. I did notice in such moments thinking comes in which isn’t really helpful. It comes from somewhere but I viewed it as a radio station and changed the frequency. After about an hour and a half, I did decide to move out of my lane and see how far I would get. I did get further but of course, thinking had two views one saying “Good for moving” and the other “ You should have done that sooner.” What is important is when moved, move.
