Day 333: Leaving room

Much to my surprise, I haven’t used this title for a post before.

Why am I surprised? ¬†Because “leaving room” is something very important to me.

I think it’s important to leave room for:

  • People’s thoughts, feelings, and experiences.
  • The possibility of change.
  • The messiness of life.
  • Our wishes to control all of the above (even when we can’t).

I think it’s important to leave room for all of it.*

In this post, I’m trying to leave room for my experience and for yours, too.

Question: I wonder how I am doing?

Answer: I think I’m doing well enough, so far.

Before I end, I would like to include an image.  Or perhaps a sound bite.

It’s wonderful to engage different senses, isn’t it?

Checking my iPhone for photos that might fit the bill ….

Aha!

On our way to a family get-together yesterday, we saw these, crossing the road (to get to the other side):

Can you see what those are? Maybe not. Especially since my introduction to the photo was misleading.**

If you couldn’t tell, here’s a closer shot:

Yes, indeed.

It was wonderful to make room for turkeys, especially on Thanksgiving Day in the USA, 2013.

Thanks for making room for all of it, today.

Question: Why did the chicken cross the road?

Answer: To get to the other side.
