In a Moment

How aware of someone are you?
Well tuned or just on peripheral of your senses?
(Someone close to me speaks of ‘profiterole vision’)

I sit with my first pot of tea and read while the rest of the house is asleep. A line leaps from a page. Someone is aware of ‘the tiny clicks her eyes made when she blinked’.

Instantly, book lowered, I blink. Once, twice, three times; click, click, click! Then for a moment I hear the clock ticking, the hum of the boiler, no the boiler pump humming, and then the substantial breeze outside and the irregular slap of an untethered cable.

The clarity is perfect!

May God grant us such awareness in dealing with someone in front of us today.
