To And Fro

A brother asked Theodore of Pherme, "Is it a good idea for me to go without bread for several days?"

He said, "You would do well. I have sometimes done that."

The brother then said, "Maybe I should take a few peas to the mill and make some vegetable meal?"

Theodore replied, "If you go to the mill, why not make yourself some bread? There is no need to be carrying things to and fro."

I can relate! My life has turned into "to and fro" and it certainly doesn't leave much room for anything else! :)
