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:
the relief of allowing ‘failed’ blueberry jam to become delicious blueberry sauce;
the joy of planning adventures with Tom;
enjoying a 9pm birthday party;
iced hibiscus and blueberry tea;
every.single bite of Le Catalan’s shrimp and orzo gratin;
fireworks over LKW;
a surprising visit from grief;
the healing impact of a very clean refrigerator;
how sharing painful stories can lessen the the pain they cause;
reading Parker Palmer’s latest book (On the Brink of Everything), while Bloss naps on my feet;
that white vinegar really does clean just about anything;
late season zinnia sprouts; and
watching a guy catch a fish in my ‘back yard’.
What NOWS did you experience or witness this week?
