Selective Noticing No. 2

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald

What have you noticed today?

{this is a new series about selective noticing which blossomed from my desire to photograph all sorts of seemingly small details with my phone... i hope to inspire all of us to notice every day moments}

As I was eating breakfast and looking out my front door I noticed two birds hanging out by my front door. They looked like they were having breakfast too. I had the yogurt, they the bugs

I love this idea of selective noticing. I do this every day, but by jotting in my calendar and later transcribing things into my written journal. Birds and animals I see, interesting people, place names, all sorts of things. My son does this also, but with photography, as that is his art and profession. And practice has taught us to know when to look for certain things, like when it's a good day to see a hawk. We have noticed, though, that most people don't notice any of the things we do. So it's wonderful that you are engaging more people in the practice. I enjoy your blog very much. Thank you for all your hard work and wonderful ideas.

I am copying that quote. It gave me goosebumps. When I drink tea, I use 2 teabags as well.

Today I noticed the rain and clouds come rolling in over the hills, and I wanted to bottle the sound of my daughter's belly laugh.
