60 Seconds for Wednesdays on Whidbey: Rejoicing in Ordinary Things.
by Diane Wyzga | October 6, 2021 | 60 Seconds, Podcast | 0 comments
Hello to you listening in Seoul, Korea!
Coming to you from Whidbey Island, Washington this is 60 Seconds, your daily dose of hope, imagination, wisdom, stories, practical tips, and general riffing on this and that.
My friend and writing colleague Sue Heatherington – The Quiet Disruptor – offers a daily blog of writing, poetry and photography observing the ordinary things: spider webs, dew drops on a blade of grass, lichen on a tree trunk, and more.
Aware of the ordinary things I might encounter as I walk the roads and shorelines here I take care to watch and listen: a ghost fawn with its mother slipping out of view, a juvenile coyote nose lifted head turned to the sound of my feet, flocks of birds circling off to the warmer south, fallen leaves moldering, and the occasional sand dollar left whole and intact in the retreating tide.
Pema Chodrin says, “Rejoicing in ordinary things is not sentimental or trite. It actually takes guts. Each time we drop our complaints and allow everyday good fortune to inspire us, we enter the warrior’s world.”
Question: What complaint have you exchanged for everyday good fortune?
