I like folding our towels: the body towel, the hand towel, the washcloth. I fold them and stack them in a pile in the hallway closet. Here I am finding satisfaction in folding our towels. These towels give me a sense of caring for the immediate. While I am cooking, folding towels, or making the bed, I think of what Julian of Norwich has said. The spirituality of life is right here, in these moments of doing very simple, ordinary things.
