a week of NOWS ~ #21

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:

an exquisitely perfect wildflower in the middle of a pile of pine straw;

the profound comfort of a welcoming kitchen (and its cooks/chefs);

spotting twelve robins on my car;

an amazing key lime cupcake;

the determination of a wind-blown hummingbird;

witnessing a duckling jump into the lake from my pier (with Mom and sibling ducklings cheering from the water);

how the scent released from crushed lavender seeds calms.my.soul;

an (un-named French brand) enameled cast iron pot dropped on foot = broken toe;

how soothing it is to hear Tom’s voice;

the healing power of my Goddaugther’s dance recital;

how great shrimp tastes even better, when I’m eating outside;

how shamefully proud I am for having an empty e.mail INBOX every.single Saturday;

the Great American Read; and

the way 15-year-old Blossom’s legs move, as she’s dreaming.

What NOWS did you experience this week?
