When will I know?

I hadn't intended to publish a post this evening but when I moderated a comment and had to come here anyway I thought...why not? It's a question I've never been able to answer for myself so perhaps someone else will know. It was written by me many years ago and has become just a tattered piece of paper that hung in my studio for years, and years. Taunting me with its profundity and yet enigmatic presence. So I ask my readers to answer this question:
When will I know I have enough, and what will I do then?

  3. I love the hamster. And, if you look at it, it knows exactly when it has enough. You drop a lot a food and it would take breaks to drink. You drop one ball as it runs and he wouldn't notice for a while. Or not. It would pause, rest, drink, eat or run, just enough. I think it's enough when there's something more interesting around the corner, that's all.

  4. Like Vitaly, I love the hamster. Gypsy, my cat, and he would make quite the pair!

    Emily Dickinson once wrote, "Enough is so vast a sweetness, I suppose it never occurs."

    I was just blog-surfing when I found your delightful post. If you're of a mind, come check out mine : WRITING IN THE CROSSHAIRS - www.rolandyeomans.blogspot.com.

    Thanks for the hamster. Sorry. Couldn't resist saying that. Have a healing weekend. Roland

  5. Good question. That's a tricky one ... When you know you have enough, I guess it's when your cup is full and you realize it's more fun to start giving? Then again, I guess it's when you can finally relax and just be. =)

  6. I think, once you have enough - you move on to the next thing.

    I don't think 'enough' is a all and everything ... thing. You can have enough pizza, but still want some more garlic bread.

    You know you have enough, when you start looking for the next thing.
