The Application of Senses

Trees

Trees

Leave your house and make your way to the park.
Pause.
Notice your impressions.

What senses are engaged: sight, scent, hearing?
Do you notice movement or stillness?

Walk on and take notice of everything around you.
What do you see, hear, feel, smell?

Try to experience something you usually wouldn’t spend much time or attention. Look at individual trees and note their differences. Touch the ground, listen to the people, birds, sounds of nature.

Think of God’s great love and vitality, shining through all the gifts He places around us:
A peaceful city and country, summer weather, green space to walk in.

Finish with a prayer before making your way back.

I See Your Lord

I am so blessed my Lord I can see you
In all the lovely things, so fine and true
I see You in the beauty of the flowers and the rain
I see You between the lines of a sweet refrain.

I am so blessed my Lord I can see you
Even when I’m lonely and in pain
I see You in the beauty of the stars at night
I see You in my life, I feel alright.

I see you Lord in sorrow and in happiness
I see You in the glory of sweet success
I see You Lord every hour, everyday
I can see you Lord whenever I pray

I am so blessed my Lord I can see you
In the smile of a baby sweet and true
I can see You in the eyes of my very best friends
I see you in these bonds just like Your love never ends.

Humanity’s Greatest Desire

Coming from a big family, in part, I would think that I can get away from people during  a pilgrimage.  Wrong. What I experience is a sea of humanity. We all have this desire to belong and to connect.

After pouring our heart and soul to our devotion, we also have something in common that is totally different. Guess what?  SHOPPING!

and this is my family, in part.

After all of these events, I spend  a great deal of “me” time.

To keep things in perspective.

The Village

(4) You can walk outside and feel the breeze through your hair and the sun’s warmth on your skin.

(7) You awoke this morning with a roof over your head.

(18) You have access to the Internet.

(19) You can read.

The truth is, you’re doing better than a lot of people in this world.  So remember to be grateful for all the things you do have.

True wealth is the ability to fully experience life. -Henry David Thoreau”

Daisy our Mascot

Walk, walk, walk.  That’s all we did since September 2, walking in solidarity with the teachers. Pet owners bring their dog for show and tell mostly and the dogs are just loving the attention.  One dog is so cute as a button. Her name is Daisy, our mascot.

Dog on strike

Daisy is a spoilt brat. She prefers to be carried instead of putting her cute little paws on the pavement. Besides, she prefers to maintain her well manicured toe nails. Soooo…. Mommy bought her two pairs of shoes.

Dog with shoes

Move over Lady Gaga, her comes Lady Daisy. Did she walk with these shoes? Are you kidding me!

Oh, she doesn’t eat bacon. She has to maintain her BMI (body mass index).
