Take time to notice



Take time to notice something today, anything, that moves you, even for seconds. A juxtaposition of colors or textures. Old wood that has a history of footprints. The calling of a living creature that makes you turn your head. If you don't have chickens, what is the pattern of the car seat, or the shoes of the person on the subway? What does the hair on your hand look like up close? If you feel anything, incorporate that feeling into your day, through memory, writing or art.

Today, like many days before, I took the time to notice how just two of one of my cat's whiskers are turned upwards on each side of her muzzle. And how long her lashes are. I can actually feel my heart get fuzzy when I see her that way. I call that "looking at her with love in my eyes". And I tell her that I see her. She knows. I know she knows.

such a good idea - a good thing to do, observe! The little hairs that stick out between my Good Dog's paws. Aaahhh...

Thank you for reading! The farm and my art/writing keep me hopping, so might not respond immediately. Thank you for understanding. ~Katherine & Apifera ~
