The Other Side

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.

The whispers inside every conversation

Never seen anyone so…

Passionate.

And never seen anyone so passionate about a place.

One of last week’s Glacier trip Guests said those things.

Never saw it coming.

Could have easily missed it, because our conversations were abundant, casual, deep, funny, serious, inspiring, mundane….and none of them had any predictability.

The whispers inside everyday conversations.

If you listen closely, you’ll hear things you never knew.

This Might Change Your Life

At your feet

Daisy
At my feet as i photographed the private beach and the mountains.

 

Wildflowers
Now, a view from my feet, looking up.

 

Wildflowers
The writing cabin.

 

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.

Busy...Dreadfully Busy

The pain we see in the souls of others is suffocating

Parking lot fender bender
Ouch

 

Parking lot fender bender
This could be the straw that breaks the camel’s back… or it could be a minor inconvenience. We never know.

 

The pain we see in the souls of others is suffocating.

Assuming we can catch our own breath and pause long enough to pay attention to the world around us.

Keep breathing.

Get your oxygen mask on and then try to help as many others as possible.
