I've learned to -

Today's prompt: What have you learned?


Stop...
whatever I'm doing
and be still for a moment;
the world comes to me when
I'm still.

Look...
up once in a while,
look around;
the world reveals itself to me when
I look.

Listen...
to other voices, to the birds,
to the song the wind makes;
the world will tell me its stories
if I listen.

So lovely. There is indeed a lot to hear and see if we listen and look. I suspect you hear and see more than most.

I have tried to learn to keep my mouth closed more and my ears open more.

I've been so still and quiet that I've missed so much off the online life.. but it's okay. There are seasons for everything..
have been sewing and walking and spending time with my husband for a change ( he travels a lot)

I look forward to playing catch up though, especially in spaces such as yours. And now you rest and enjoy the quiet for a bit ! :)
