I'm learning how much it's not about multitasking, but about meaningful single-tasking. The practice is in putting that first thing on pause (gracefully), and then turning to attend to the next. Trusting the TV and the VCR will stay there, frozen, waiting - in the exact same place - until you come back to it with your attention.
Of course, life always keeps moving, but I know my work is allowing for the space to step away, to focus entirely elsewhere - and pretend that the pause button is a real thing.
