#HowDoYouSee2 #HDYS2A3

This week was all about Slowing Down…noticing things we hadn’t noticed before. I noticed that by slowing down (and coming to a near stop at times) I was able to keep the little things that can seem so monumental in perspective.
I looked up and realized how relatively small our seemingly insurmountable troubles were. I looked down and saw lush carpets of green and welcoming waters offering solace. I looked around and remembered to breathe…and any day spent breathing, is a good day after all.
“The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home. In a cosmic perspective, most human concerns seem insignificant, even petty. And yet our species is young and curious and brave and shows much promise. In the last few millennia we have made the most astonishing and unexpected discoveries about the Cosmos and our place within it, explorations that are exhilarating to consider. They remind us that humans have evolved to wonder, that understanding is a joy, that knowledge is prerequisite to survival. I believe our future depends on how well we know this Cosmos in which we float like a mote of dust in the morning sky.” ~Carl Sagan, Cosmos
