In the midst of all the action in yesterday’s petty post, there was this invitation to take time to reflect:
You may not have noticed that good advice from this good book:
because I was guilty of reflecting it on its side, like this:
I didn’t take time to reflect those two page in their correct orientation yesterday, because there was so much petty information I wanted to share.
Like Wilma, I believe it is important to take time to reflect, even in the midst of emergencies and adventures. Today, I have a day off from work because of Presidents Day, so I can take time to reflect. My boyfriend Michael, who definitely takes time to reflect, asked me to reflect on who were my most favorite and least favorite U.S. Presidents.
If you take time to reflect, how would you answer Michael’s question?
I’m going to take time to share something else Michael reflected: “These days everything seems sinister to me.” I took time to reflect Michael’s feelings and then to ask him if I seemed sinister to him. When he said no, I took time to reflect that I AM sinister, because “sinister” means “left-handed” in Latin.
I take time to reflect my gratitude that there is less bias against left-handed people than there used to be.
Please take time to reflect on these recent, previously unreflected photos:
I take time to reflect when I drive and when I ride, especially when there’s snow on the ground.
I take time to reflect that a week from now I will be in Los Angeles, taking time to reflect with many other group therapists about the work we do.
Last night, I took time to reflect to Michael how much I love this performance of “In France They Kiss on Main Street” with my favorites Joni Mitchell, Pat Metheny, Lyle Mays, and Jaco Pastorius.
I’m taking time to reflect that Pat and Lyle looked like that when I first saw them at the Paradise in Boston, decades ago.
Please take time to reflect your thoughts and feelings in a comment, below.
As usual, I take time at the end of each post to reflect gratitude towards all who help me create this reflective blog and — of course! — YOU.
Cheers of gratitude to great presidents past and future, Ann!
