Today I took a different path which I would have thought would stimulate all sorts of new observations. And I walked it twice, which doubled my opportunities for seeing something attention grabbing. Psyched for the route, I headed out early, tuned and receptive.
The air was cool but the sun was burning hot. I let my gaze wander over the terrain looking up and looking down. I listened for sounds different and unusual. My nostrils quivered hoping to smell an unfamiliar aroma. My tastebuds were in anticipation mode awaiting the iced coffee at the end of my trek.
I went. I came back.
I have nothing more to report…but I did pay attention.
