Red light. Was that a text? Did I shut the front door? Coffee’s too hot. Shoes tight – why these ones? Forgot lunch. Meeting in ten. That song’s stuck. What was that smell? Last night’s dream? Emails piling. Traffic. Kids’ recital, when? New email. Almost spilled the coffee. Another ping on the phone. Endless to-do list. Wait, is it raining? That song on repeat, can’t shake it. Coffee spills, phone rings, was that a bird or a siren?
Stop. Take a moment.
Deep breath in. Hold. Exhale.
Look around: 5 things you see.
Feel your surroundings: 4 things you touch.
Listen: 3 sounds you hear.
Smell: 2 scents in the air.
Taste: 1 thing, be it the air or your drink.
This blog is a quiet corner in the clamorous digital world.
Think of it as a muted grey space where the volume of life dials down.
Here, we ground ourselves, reflect on the simple moments, and perhaps, in the gentle whispers of words, grasp new insights.
No loud banners, no flashy promises.
Just a place to be, ponder, and learn.
Join me in this quietude.
