A Better Place to Be


"I want to cry sometimes, do you?

Sometimes it seems as though love has escaped to never return again.
Not real love anyway.

That's what makes me cry."

Attention vs. Intention

Similar words, but very different meanings:

  • Attention: the act or state of attending, especially through applying the mind to an object of sense or thought.
  • Intention: a determination to act in a certain way.

Continuous Partial Attention

n. A state in which most of one's attention is on a primary task, but where one is also monitoring several background tasks just in case something more important or interesting comes up. Also: CPA. We're aware of several things at once, shifting our attention to whatever's most urgent. It's not a reflective state.
