Aware...


Today I am aware...I am being observant...I am paying attention to my surroundings and connecting.. Today i am aware that I have not been connecting to all that is around me lately. Today I am stirring feelings of celebration and joy. I am aware of the fresh breeze and the smells of fall in the air..the sound of geese as the fly overhead and the movement of the branches and the plants. Today I am aware of the fullness of life. Lately I have been so involved in my thoughts of business, of creating and of every day living that I have not been paying attention to the rhythm of life around me. To the change it is bringing. So today I connect and I am aware that although I am alone in my studio for my creativity I am not alone at all....
I am part of the whole...and I must be aware of that in order to be part of it! So that would be my wish for you today, that you take a moment to pay attention and become aware of the life around you...to the sun/the breeze/and the birds. And my question would be:
HOW CAN YOU KEEP THIS AWARENESS ALIVE FOR YOURSELF DURING SOME POINT OF YOUR DAY?
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

Awareness today
Creates gifts for tomorrow
And cherished memories from yesterday...

Today...I will move by buttocks from this chair and move outside into the sunshine for one hour. I will swim underwater and feel the light refracting in a thousand patterns all around me; remembering my summers as a kid...when I thought of myself as a dolphin and a mermaid.
