Just Camping

Yesterday, my sister and I were running together, down a lovely country road.  As always, we were talking as we ran, and we talked about how much we enjoyed camping.  We enjoyed many things about the camping, but most of all we enjoyed how when you're camping, you just do one thing at a time.  Make breakfast.  Eat breakfast.  Visit.  Play at the park.  Make a fire.  Sit by the fire.  You get the picture.  We were Just Camping.  It struck me today how much camping is like meditation, because meditation is Just Sitting.  Not thinking, or worrying or fretting or planning or stressing.  Just Sitting.  How nice that when I can't Just Camp, I *can* Just Sit.
