These are the first words I see each morning when I open the refrigerator door to get the milk for my frother. I don’t know that Henry Miller wrote them for me, but I am glad they are there because sometimes I need a reminder to be aware, even about the things of which I don’t particularly want to be aware. Living each day with eyes wide open, paying attention to the smallest of details, responding with love and appreciation, acknowledging the familiar, learning to see don’t always come easy, but knowing that I am making an effort to be aware is joyful, satisfying, serene, delirious. There’s so much to miss otherwise. Now, if I could only deal with all that of which I am aware!
How about you? Are you aware? Does awareness come hard or easy for you?
