What I mean by #lifeisattention

I’ve been quietly making little notes to myself on Twitter for a few weeks as the year winds down to a close. I’ve been hashtagging the notes #lifeisattention so I can find them easily later. ┬áThe short format of Twitter forces me to keep things concise and specific, which is also good when your attention is a little wayward.
