I’ve been thinking about how we take things for granted. For one thing, the ability to see the world around us. I closed my eye and leaned back in the sofa. I could hear the bell on my cat’s collar. I could smell pizza baking in the oven. The news was on TV and I felt warm wrapped in the quilt my friend Tiffany made for me. If I stretch my legs out, I can feel the edge of the oak coffee table with the tips of my toes.
Try closing your eyes. Write what you feel, sense, hear…be as vivid as you can.
