|Today I join my fellow bloggers in "serving up a slice" |
to the Tuesday Slice of Life sponsored by
Two Writing Teachers.
Search, seek for serendipity. No, serendipity just happens! It doesn't require searching or seeking, it just asks me to be present.
Slow down to notice life and savor it. As I've lived more days as a writer, I find myself noticing my life more and looking forward to writing about it.
Settle down - I like these two words! Here are some dictionary explanations:
- to become quiet, calm, or orderly
- to begin to live a quiet and steady life
- to put yourself in a comfortable position
- to become quiet and begin giving your attention to something
I like some of these words, but others don't speak to me. While I long for calm and order, the words that call to me are comfort and attention.
After searching, seeking, and slowing down, I settle for the comfort and call of SAVOR, my OLW for 2014.
Yesterday, I realized that I hadn't visited Slater Park in April. Earlier this year, I decided to savor moments there throughout the year. I love that my visits there are a delicious opportunity to savor this special spot. Here are some favorite photos from yesterday's visit:
Ignore the list and the "have-tos"
Honor the "want-tos"
Grab the moment, it doesn't last forever
