Mundane Mindfulness

If the water pressure is too high, the curved cups of the ice cube tray act like parabolas and shoot jets of water up and everywhere, splashing the counters and the floor.

Too low, though, and it just takes forever to fill the tray. There has to be some kind of balance.

I move the tray evenly through the cold water streaming steadily from the tap, holding it at an angle to fill each of the cups and letting them overflow into the next, all the while wondering why I'm paying such close attention to such a mundane task.
