a week of nows #7



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:

ribs and Waldorf salad, shared with my right person;

the delicious ritual of pour-over coffee;


sharing Lenten hopes with GodFriends;

allowing whacko.bank.policies.and.very.poor.customer.service to ruin only a few minutes, rather than a whole day;


celebrating great news with beloveds;

giving expectations less power over my emotions and reactions;

seeing geese flying in their V;

swapping memories, sharing present moments, and anticipating future joys with a long.time.pal;

The Moment sugar and butter become caramel;

witnessing an egret gracefully land on.the.top of a very tall tree;

hanging clothes to dry outside IS as much fun when my dryer is broken, as when it’s not;

sometimes, procrastination is a five syllable word for sloth;

the cohesiveness of a community in a crisis;

amazing coffee;

the joy of sharing in a Thai and Toenails Ritual;

alligator(s) and turtles lining the banks of LKW IN FEBBRUARY;

how Bloss settles into THE ray of Light on the floor;

remembering why I shouldn’t  scratch my eye after slicing jalapeno peppers;

Bradford Pair Tree blossoms in mid February, and

a perfectly cooked shrimp.
