Give It Some Attention!
What do you think Henry Miller is talking about? Do you really notice the everyday objects that are all around you? Most of us are so busy in our heads, rushing onto the next thing that we miss what is around us - the beauty in everyday objects, the small worlds that may be present.
Why not take a pause - grab yourself a glass of water, go out into an outside space and notice what is around you. Try focussing in on a flower, a leaf, a blade of grass, even a wall. What do you see? Maybe use your other senses - smell, listen, touch, even taste if it is appropriate. Give yourself permission to spend 5 minutes just noticing. If your mind wanders, which it does, bring it back to what you are observing. And breathe into it. Allow your body to relax into your 5 minute pause.
