a week of NOWS ~ #25

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:

realizing the Daddy was only 61 when he died. all.these.years i’d ‘remembered him as 65. bad-at-math as i am, the power of how our human brains/memories can adjust our ‘life narratives’ never ceases to amaze me;

the honor helping Tom celebrate Father’s Day;

that a roasted sweet potato is infinitely better than a microwaved sweet potato;

witnessing an owl dive through my yard;

how a child can claim her own wisdom and power;

finding out that dragonflies bite;

choosing not to complain about The Heat;

blueberry-infused iced tea;

my responding to the young girl at FoodLion, who asked me if I could fly with my stick, “I don’t know. Should I try it?”   (ps- she said, “probably not from a high-up place”)

grilled peaches;

fresh lavender (on many levels);

James Corden and Paul McCartney;

witnessing adult children generously choose to share the joy of their father’s life in the midst of their own grief; and

watching a duck manuveur a pine cone to the lake.

What NOWS did you experience or witness this week?
