Is it Shopping?

November 4th

Although I have given up my attitude of not entering a store and buying things. I am still living in the present by not buying anything beyond the basics – food and toiletries. This is not hard at home in Vermont, but travelling in Boston this week makes it a challenge.
Today I browsed through Copley Plaza …a marvel of marble and expensive stores. Despite having gone into four stores, I bought nothing. I thought of the journey as much more of exploratory trip rather than “shopping.” Also, invaluable in my non purchase was the fact that I left my debit card and credit cards at the hotel. Self regulation.
