A friend calls and says “What are you doing?” You are watching television so you say “Nothing”.
Watching television is NOTHING.
Watching Netflix is NOTHING.
Preparing meals is something.
Snacking all day is NOTHING.
Housework is something.
Yard work is something.
Care of chickens is something.
Photographing chickens is NOTHING.
Walking for exercise is something.
Strolling for pleasure is NOTHING.
Computer research is something.
Computer blogging is NOTHING.
Everything that is “NOTHING” can become “something’ if you involve handwork with it, like crocheting or folding laundry or peeling potatoes.
What do you do that is NOTHING? What do you add to it to make it something? And do you all understand the guilt from which I speak?
