My husband often talks about having passionate attention when reading a book or listening to music. I would add that the same might be required when looking at a painting, or spending time with a dear friend. We're all in such a hurry these days, it seems unfathomable to stop for five minutes to invest your time, energy and heart in something that doesn't yield measurable results ... but it is so worth it. When you lose yourself in something other than the dailiness of your life, you forget your troubles and become richer in spirit.
What do you like to give passionate attention?
I'm spending the next few days in the studio. I'll be back to share the fruits of my labor.
