Attention Deficient

To be aware of a single thing means you have your attention on it, which is the first step toward doing anything.

You also realize attention exists within the larger sphere of awareness. While attention is mandatory for completing tasks, it is more important to remain aware.

You could be engrossed in your favorite piece of music while your house was burning down. It would be smarter to be aware that the house is on fire instead of paying attention to the music.

Where is your attention? Does it involve gossip, opinion polls, banal thoughts, lurid tales haunting high profile folk, or name your distraction? Are you proud of your attention? Answer truthfully, or why bother.

This post reminds me of my childhood. Teachers and parents—always telling me to pay attention.

No one ever mentioned awareness—and thank you for that now.

Still learning.

The more I focus on my art, the less I pay attention to all that chatter outside.

Thanks for reading and commenting in my corner of this internet woods.  I look forward to reading more in yours.
