With the weekend approaching, it might be
apt to look at the pleasure of all five senses:
seeing — these are the gates through which the
world pours in and through us. The wider we open
those gates, the more fully we shall know the
pleasures, unique to this embodied life, that are
passing even now as we speak.
And we shall come to this knowledge, not by
hurrying to cram it all in, but by slowing down,
so we may glimpse the vastness of every moment,
and touch of hand to hand
as it happens.”
…………….ROGER HOUSDEN, from his book,
Seven Sins for a LIfe Worth Living.
I could mention all the ‘big’ words, like
friendship, freedom, enough, that move us through
the days of our lives. I could do that and it would
be what I spend a lot of my time considering.
Housden is asking me, us, you, to get out of our
minds to just notice the simpler means we have
at hand to accomplish much.
There it is, that big word: accomplish.
I’m putting that aside until next Monday.
Time enough then.
always with love,
