Mind and Mine Today
“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.” — Henry David Thoreau
Woven in the ordinary, in the sameness.
In the crevices and cracks.
In the corners and hallways.
In the waiting and the hurry.
In nature, a flower, the sun, the eyes of another.
Beauty, joy, awe linger.
Do not miss today in search of tomorrow, of someday, of different.
Be present, participate, contribute.
In this moment, be present in this step of the journey
Mindful of the moment.
Mining the beauty, joy and awe.
“Mindfulness is a way of being present: paying attention to and accepting what is happening in our lives. It helps us to be aware of and step away from our automatic and habitual reactions to our everyday experiences.” — Elizabeth Thornton
