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:
Buttermint tea helps me prepare for a restful night.
It seemed like an osprey was following my car. So, I pulled off the road. The osprey circled over my car twice, tilting its wings like a trick plane and them flew away. I’m not sure if that was a sign, but even if it wasn’t, it was meant for me.
As a woman, a weekend with longtime gal pals cures ails I didn’t even know I had.
I’ve been making really good clam chowder for years. NOW I know a little thyme and a fresh bay leaf makes it even better.
Life relationships require work. And that work is worth every-single-second.
I don’t care that I can’t teach my old dog new tricks. I want to learn everything I can from her, while she’s still here.
Meeting someone for the first time, whom I feel like I’ve known forever is beyond sacred.
Last minute preparation is often my best.
Watching someone I love cry with joy made me cry with joy.
No matter how well I think I know someone, there is always room for surprise.
Julian of Norwich’s revelations are at least as relevant today, as they were in her day.
Magic can be created with a little dye and a silk scarf.
Spiritual does not always mean serious.
Evensong with Schola Cantorum of the Diocese of East Carolina is an exquisite way to end a week.
