#287 present

Positioning my thoughts to
Receive and respond
Emotionally available
Seeing and sensing
Nuances and the unsaid
Taking it all in

I’m learning a lot about what it means to be truly present in a situation when I am tending someone else. It’s hard to be 100% focused on something outside the self. I wonder if that is truly possible because I am myself and you are your self and I can’t possibly know everything in your your head and you can’t possibly know everything in mine. We can’t be each other but we can be with each other. May it be that we can put our own selves aside enough to truly listen and be present to each other.

    The form of your writing echoes the content..it is so hard to be mindful..I imagine writing this took you to that present place..Jae

  4. I like the line about taking it all in. I am glad that everyone doesn’t know everything that goes on in my mind. Some things are better kept to oneself. Thanks for sharing this!
