a week of NOWS ~ #29

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:

enjoying every.single.moment of an early morning gentle breeze off of LKW;

that someone can drop and clear away a dead tree in less than two hours;

how sharing laughter, especially at the end of a long day, makes everything feel better;

the way Bloss slowly flops her tail, as I pet her, when she’s sleeping;

an eight-point buck swimming in Lake Waccamaw;

that talking through life’s muddiness with Tom always brings clarity and calm;

the subtle way fresh thyme enhances homemade fig jam;

receiving a gloriously generous surprise from Linda and Barb;

discovering a new (to me) binge-worthy show (The Village);

my first bite of my first tomato pie of the season;

every word of historian, David Cecelski’s series of articles –The Color of Water;

how dew really does ‘sparkle like diamonds’ under the morning sun;  and

the stunningly positive impact of simply making eye contact with a stranger.
