YO! gille,
I thought about it as focusing intensively on the "now"
like what is the thing I am doing right now to do with the stuff I really am after
if you do not do the right thing now, you lose so much time, you get in a hurry to fix the things you did half-assed
but if you are in the now you forget to fill up the tank, buy the food, arrange for the meetings...

seems that it takes some skills that I have not been able to develop
at my age, I might never get there

Eyup, how's Martinique or wherever it is?

You're saying you think mindfulness might preclude the holy grail of multi-tasking?

Réunion Island. Winter here, sort of. Temperatures down to 12 centigrade in the morning.
Solstice is today so we start heading for spring.

Correct, at least in my head 'mindfulness' means stopping the brain keeping multiple processes going on at the same time and concentrating on the one at hand. Planning ahead, making lists etc., might facilitate it but unfortunately the world goes on showing very little respect to my plans: Offices closed, people on vacances, mail not arrived (or even sent) and me in my mindfulness not taking advantage of the clues from my surroundings to remember what was missing at home. Like seeing a coffee cooker and remembering that I should get one, the old fashioned piston thing, for the delicious vanilla coffee. (A local speciality)

And I like it when my mind is wandering. I think mindfulness is for somebody else.

Why do I suspect that that second-last sentence is really the key to the question? :)

Mindfulness is difficult, no doubt about it - that's why there are people running workshops on it, I suppose.

Might as well be winter here, though it's actually midsummer's day: dark, cool and raining. But personally I don't mind that, I'm not a sun-worshipper as I seem to remember you are.

You cannot imagine how good the vanilla coffe tastes with a warm chocolat fondant!
My loved one made some Tiramisu using Vanilla Coffee.
With fresh strawberries it was nearly as delicious as her...

I get eczema from the lack of sun. A nap in the beach under the shade of the filaos trees in the Meditation of Meditations for me. Yes, I worship the sun.

After all, it makes sense since all the energy we have comes from the electrons exciten by its rays, building sugar and more complex molecules so that we can activate our ATP cycles and get our bodies moving. No sun, no life. Unless you are some miles deep around a volcanic pit and eat the adapted plankton.

I prefer my way of life.

the tropical night is pitch black, Scorpio is floating over my roof.
I close the shades -not to avoid cosmic radiation- but because I only have one radiator in the house and I put it in my bedroom.

You don't like the sun?
You do not like people who like the sun?
Try it sometimes...

Ah, now you're talking. You can't beat a clear night to see the stars.

That's too wide an inference; I only said I don't mind damp weather.
