7 Days Challenge, Day 7: Fall in love with the world

Rewards

Reading people’s minds in their poetry, 
seeing what they pay attention to,
I make new friends.

Writing with my attention on the world,
I return and read, and from outside
discover myself.


Actually the heading for Day 7 is, 'Join us and keep writing', along with an invitation to take a course called 'Fall in love with the world in 30 days', and to join the 'Writing Our Way Home' community — neither of which I am going to do. Not that I don't think they would be good things to do, but I have enough to keep up with already, both online and off. And I am already in love with the world; always have been.


Apart from that, the instruction for today is: Make sure you notice one thing today, too, and write it down. So this, above, is what I noticed at the end of this 7 days.


I will be engaging in the next 'River of stones' in January, with daily posts here ... and probably a few in the interim. :)
