In this time of being thankful, and in close connection with what I wrote yesterday, I see now that a habit of gratitude has a sister: a habit of noticing.
(Sidenote: my current take on noticing is that it’s a way of pulling off the abstractions that cover my attention like a film, freeing me to focus on what’s really there.)
Looking, listening, attending. These carve out space for appreciation; it’s hard for me to appreciate something I’m unaware of.
