Moments of Non-Being: September 15, 2015

These separate moments of being were however embedded in many more moments of non-being. 1 have already forgotten what Leonard and I talked about at lunch; and at tea; although it was a good day the good was embedded in a kind of nondescript cotton wool.  This is always so. A great part of every day is not lived consciously. One walks, eats, sees things, deals with what has to be done; the
broken vacuum cleaner; ordering dinner; writing orders to Mabel; washing; cooking dinner; bookbinding. When it is a bad day the proportion of non-being is much larger.
