Listen to everyone I will meet during my day, especially my family.
For me it is the sense of seeing today, reflecting on the unknown and looking for perhaps a few answers.
Perhaps feelings, meaning getting in touch with. I am not sure if that is a sense or not, but that is where I landed.
Lately my body has had a lot to say. I could be a bit more quiet and try to listen.
Today I will be driving through great beauty as I travel on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington state. I need to stay attentive to my driving to stay safe but I can appreciate the green around me and if I find a spot to pull over and just look, I can do that.
Right now I am petting the soft fur of our gray striped tabby and appreciating how silky soft he is, especially the extra soft spots right behind his ears.
On this warm summer morning, I went
outside and sat in the patio, in the early
dawn, and noticed the smell. It was the
scent of summer. It reminded me of
camping and of my childhood.
One small thing I can do to connect more deeply with my hearing is to listen more intently. I tend to multitask and that does not provide space for true listening.
Yesterday I was notified that I won a very small, retirement living, photo contest. The picture was of a seagull flying over water during an Alaskan trip. I am grateful for observation.
Today I am attempting to make beet brownies. I will tickle my taste buds with a different sensation. Thank you for the sense of taste.
Like many have mentioned, I am thankful for all my senses in this third act of life.
I know the act I will mention is mundane and trivial—clean my glasses, that I might see “more clearly.”
When my specs are in need of a good cleaning, I most often express to myself “No wonder I can’t see!”
I’m planning on making some stew that I season with a large variety of spices, lots of onion and garlic…that always brings me a greater appreciation for my sense of smell!
Close my eyes more throughout the day to focus more keenly on the constant and varied sound frequencies that surround. WIll give a try.
We begin our travel today to Ct. to see family. I will be aware of my sense of sight as we travel along. We do travel some highways but also a quieter semi country road…I find peace and solace seeing homes and families in these settings. In a few days, I will be hearing my brother in laws band for most likely the last time as group members are retiring and moving…so I will savor the music and the togetherness, May all of you find something to bring a smile on your face today. Blessings.
I could take more pauses throughout the day to take in what my senses see, hear, feel, smell and taste.
