Paying Attention - 6WS - 18 October 2014

In elementary school teachers were always saying, "Pay More Attention" and "don't stare out the window."  Apparently, they never noticed that I really was paying a lot of attention, on everything but schoolwork.  As children, most of us never missed a beat on anything around us.


SIX WORD SATURDAY





A SIMPLE ACT OF PAYING ATTENTION

TAKES YOU A LONG, LONG WAY


"For the senses wander, and when one lets the mind follow them, it carries wisdom away like a windblown ship on the waters." - Bhagavad Gita



Secretly, (don't tell anyone) I want this horse.  It's been at this antique shop since the beginning of time nearly, (a bit overpriced) hence the reason no one has purchased it yet.



I completely caught this little one following close behind me.  Then I followed along and met the rest of the flock.  Did you know that chickens with reddish brown feathers lay brown eggs and white feathered chickens lay white eggs?


See, I do pay attention.



"To pay attention this is our endless and proper work." -  Mary Oliver





Enjoy your weekend!

Thanks for quoting Bhagvad Geeta, so much wisdom in it, the holy book for us Hindus.

Only when we wander we discover new things of life and the experience is marvelous.

well, i'm hoping the shop will reduce their price for their horse and you'll be able to add it to your yard. :)

A windblown ship on the water! Sounds a bit like me, I'm afraid :(

I don't think that's what your teachers meant. ;)

there's a family joke about paying tension...as in no one paid the child any tension.

Maybe you can haggle the price a bit?
