A Recipe for Wonder

Trust, as if
trust is not an issue

Let curiosity lead –
hunger for learning

See the world as undefined –
focus soft.

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.

  1. “focus soft” – that line struck me. To me it speaks of gentleness in many ways one can be gentle – in how one treats others, in how one approaches learning, in how one carries himself.

  2. “See the world as undefined –
    focus soft.”

    This is actually why I am happy to have “bad vision.” I get the option to see the clear cut and crisp lines of my corrected lenses, and then relax, escape into this world of wonder where everything blurs into the next and the stars are bursts of light coming for me.

  3. I think it’s no coincidence when two people like the same line in a blog post. So I was not surprised I found some treasures on your blog as well as I started reading. I love this line of yours, too. See the world as undefined –
    focus soft. I have a hard time focusing soft. Fortunately, there is still time to learn.
