268 – Look up!

Willis Street, lunch time. I wandering along and I hear the clanging of something hard landing in a skip bin. Building rubble – something was coming down to earth. I’m always slightly anxious about building sites and the ‘oops, I dropped my hammer, sorry’.

I could see the crane lowering something, but what really grabbed me was this huge tall edifice. In an instant I wanted to be a kid again and grab my Mum’s hand and tug her attention and shout, ‘Whoa, look at THAT!’

Strangely, I was the only person entranced by this amazing device. No-one on the street bothered to look up. ‘It’s a crane, ho-hum, boring, I see them every day, you stupid kid!’ The best people could manage was a quick stare at me taking photos.

So where did the kid in you go? How come now that you’re this astoundingly cool and important adult you’re not impressed with impressive things anymore? Is the child in you so deeply buried, so dead, that a ‘Whoa, look at THAT!’ is out of question? No ‘I wanna have a go at driving that thing’?

I’m sorry, I just have to do this. Hey you, and you – whoa, look at THAT!

12. Every day love yourself.

36. Every day be still. Connect to your inner being. Listen and be guided by it.
