a week of nows ~ #15

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:

Tom’s smile, when he met me at the airport;

the first ducklings of the season;


The Durrells of Corfu;

zinnia sprouts;

all of the hope and prayers surrounding a dear friend’s cancer surgery and healing;

overwhelmingly generous birthday wishes;

all those discounts because i’m now 60;

enjoying gourmet cupcakes with soul sisters;

that practicing yang and yin yoga each day won’t CURE multiple sclerosis, but it sure makes it more livable (for me);

how so.much.honesty can be shared over a cuppa tea (or coffee);

hearing the ocean;

reconnecting with Trinity Center pals;

an electric guitar-playing Bishop;

feeling the life-force of a high-flying 40-foot octopus kite;

the healing power of walking on a beach;

the joy of trusting a leader;

a freshly picked (and eaten) strawberry; and

the tremendous impact of  story-listening.

What NOWS did you experience this week?
