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 :: white chicken chili, chicken pie, celebratory cake (thank you, Leslie and Anne!), roasted parsnips, spinach artichoke leek soup, salted caramel brownie, shrimp and teriyaki vegetables
hearing :: Nothing by Edie Brickell, Canadian geese commuting through our skies, the sounds of rocks splashing in a nearby pond as Happy threw and threw rocks to his heart’s delight on a pretty October afternoon
smelling :: fresh cut grass, cut tuberoses, hibiscus yuzu candle, sautéed onions
seeing :: my boys and Lola (yes, even Lola slept in the tent) camp out in the backyard last weekend (I slept in my own warm bed!), the pumpkins arrive in town for the annual pumpkin sale fundraiser, my students enjoying each other and class and especially snack time (years ago, I had one of my classes do snack time where 2-3 students bring in a snack for class each week. Brought it back this semester. Such a fun thing)
feeling :: tender-hearted as people I love battle health woes
wishing/hoping :: a season filled with an abundance of love and healthy good wishes for all of us
