You can observe a lot by watching

College dormitory corner room
This open-windowed corner dorm room caught my eye from the dining hall last night. The higher (3rd floor) view and the rare, additional window make it a prized location for an over-focused student. Th fact that you gain (unauthorized) roof access is also appealing for the right college student.

You can observe a lot by watching.

Watching is more difficult, and perhaps dormant when our devices supersede our desire to grow and interact with our surroundings.

From my experience, college is the single most important opportunity to interact with your life.

Why?

Because you only cross this threshold between teenage years and early twenties once, and then it’s gone forever.

This Might Change Your Life

At your feet

Be a noticer.

When you are, you’ll notice more than you used to.

Noticing more than you used to will open doors to thoughts, ideas, understanding, and dreams that heretofore where invisible.

Being a noticer is a double-edged sword

Unusual flower next to the sidewalk, about the size of a quarter.

 

Being a noticer is a blessing and a curse.

Blessing because you discover so much.

Curse because you discover so much.

Dear Son

Maybe i was off balance

Nature
i pass this tree multiple times a day.

 

Our neighbor’s tree is now home to a Red Tail Hawk family.

Yesterday morning in the mundane routine of walking the trash can to the curb, i noticed a hawk in the middle of the tree.

This seemed unusual because i normally spot them on the upper and outer branches.

Closer inspection revealed a big nest.

This tree shades our mailbox and our driveway entrance.

i had never noticed the nest being built.

Maybe i was out of balance.

Is there Island time in Heaven?

Palm tree shade
Island time helps you notice things you normally don’t.

 

Is there Island time in Heaven?

Gonna go with, “Yes, all the time.”
