Opinion: The secret to being fully present | PBS NewsHour

Baking turned out to be a lesson in what we used to call reading comprehension. I hadn’t been paying attention to the text, which might have been because I was talking on the phone while folding the wet and dry ingredients, or I was folding the laundry while running the mixer, or making a note to myself in the margins of the cookbook to write a piece about cakes.
