The Necessity of Awareness

“There are these two young fish swimming along and they happen to meet an older fish swimming the other way, who nods at them and says, ‘Morning, boys. How’s the water?’ And the two young fish swim on for a bit, and then eventually one of them looks over at the other and goes, ‘What the hell is water?'”

Just started reading Blue Mind by Wallace J. Nichols. He talks about how awareness of what is so real and essential, is often hidden or unrecognized.

May your day be full of awareness and simple pleasures!10922487_10152723703753366_35523813288964278_n

      Thanks for joining us! I find that choosing words carefully is an art. Many times the fewer the words, the more powerful the message is.
