Alrighty…it’s Day 12 of Harula’s GALDvent and the word and quote of the day is……
THE SENSES: “Lose your mind and come to your senses.” ~Frederick Salomon Perls~
Now take a moment to pause and reflect upon how The Senses have shown up in your life recently. Which of your senses do you feel most connected to? Which needs your attention perhaps? Where do you go, or what do you do to give your senses a treat? Do you believe in, or have experience of a ‘sixth sense’?
I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order. ~John Burroughs~
For today’s Soul Stroll I decided to leave my camera home! I love taking pictures, capturing moments to keep as reminders. But in doing so, I lose out on relishing ‘the moment’ because I’m so preoccupied in getting just the right shot…so leaving my camera home wasn’t an easy thing to do. (So for this blog I’ve reached into my archives to put a photo with the sense.)
I’ve been Blessed to see so much of natures beauty here in my own backyard. Words and pictures can’t do them justice, though I am grateful for the moments I have frozen in time. This mornings camera less stroll, left me open to soak it all in and to appreciate this beautiful island I call home!
I have to admit while walking, I saw a bald eagle and my first reaction was to reach for my camera. I then just stood and observed, and he gifted me with a flight over my head, circled and then landed once again. A moment, a memory etched in my mind and heart.
