My word for 2018 is focus, which requires paying attention to the moment – the now. So, this year, I’ll be taking note of experiences I may have missed, without focus. Many may seem to be BGO’s ( blinding glimpses of the obvious), but hey, I might have missed them.
Here’s this week of NOWS:
one of my oldest friends has the youngest spirit;
spotting a loon on LKW is as cool as hearing it;
unpacking the boxes of Mom’s life leads to unpacking on.many.levels;
the world really hasn’t ended because I’ve only unpacked a few boxes;
I’m amazed by how excited I am to turn 60 in a couple of months;
along with LKW and Trinity Center, the Grove Park Inn is one of my happy places;
just when I thought I’d attended my last concert, James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt go on tour;
some of the people I’ve known the longest, I’ve only recently met;
Julian of Norwich was right, all shall be well;
knowing a friend’s life recently has more joy and healing gives my life more joy and healing;
my gratitude to and love for Tom often overwhelms me;
adding sparkling water to cornbread batter really does make it lighter; and
sometimes, the best way to help a friend is to keep sharing the message, “you can do this.”
What NOWS did you experience this week?

* EAGER to go to the pool to walk in water, not just willing.
* line up outside my window: robin, woodpecker, blue jay. All at one time.
* lively book club discussion keeps me happily awake past ‘bedtime’.
* discover sheet pan meal making – great flavor, good veggies, easy to prepare and clean up
oooooo Penny, what a rich week of NOWS! i love sheet pan meals, too 🙂
