This morning I noticed my recycling bag parked near the front door to remind me to take it on my next trip. Then I laughed as I realized I have been out the front door twice this morning and stepped around it without even noticing it. That tells me my attention was split. I was clearly ahead of myself each time I passed the bag on the way to the next thing. In my experience two thoughts in the mind simultaneously make neither one the focus. And voila – the recycling sits. PS I moved it against the door so there is no stepping around it.
