Friday Reflections is all about reflecting on the week by observing our senses. My hope is that this will be a gentle, easy way to tune into how we are doing and what we are experiencing weekly when journaling in general can feel so daunting.
Now, for this week’s Friday Reflections (with each sense as your inspiration, consider how experiencing it impacted your week).
Here is my sensory round-up for this week:
tasting :: an unbelievable white cheese pizza at Roberta’s in Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood, a heckuva burger at Bare Burgers in Greenwich burger, a Farro salad loaded with all good things like purple onion, spinach, feta, and more, mashed potatoes and asparagus, Olive Garden breadsticks and salad (Happy’s birthday dinner pick for BF), birthday morning pancakes and birthday evening birthday cake.
hearing :: the sounds of a big city- from pigeons to crosswalk bells, the cacophony of a big city is captivating. The hurt and offended cries of my sweet boy when the car door grazed his fingers. Oh, my heart.
smelling :: Gap Dream (perfume). I know I am not 17 but this perfume has been my jam for years now. Light, clean and citrusy. I had been out for awhile and finally picked up a new bottle.
seeing :: Incredible city skylines with so much visual interest everywhere. Bolts and bolts of gorgeous fabric and racks and racks of beautiful dresses all announcing the wonder of creativity. A best friend after too many years away from each other. My boys. I’ve traveled a whole lot (for me) over the last month– which was all great– but it is nice to lay my eyes on my boys and know that I’ll be seeing them daily for awhile.
feeling :: happy to have BF in my life. His birthday was this week so lots to celebrate there but even more to celebrate in just the dailyness. Many you are loveds and happy birthdays to BF.
wishing/hoping :: for a happy, smooth, worry-free weekend as a bookend to a busy month and a precursor to another round of a different kind of crazy.
