Come to Your Senses
Come to your senses! Use your whole self as you engage in the world each day. Use them by tasting, smelling, touching, seeing and hearing life. Our senses are our most valued resource for living creatively, yet far too often we ignore them. We eat dinner on the run, not tasting the flavors or textures. We don't see the wildflowers growing by the mailbox or on the side of the road as we are hurriedly scurry off to our destination. (Remember, the joy of the journey is in the ride.) We don't smell or feel the rain as it falls to nourish the land; too often we blame it for dampening our spirits. The way I see it, we have to put up with a few raindrops if we want to see a big rainbow.
