Mindfulness means fully living in the present; concentrating and focusing your attention on what is around you.

While making a salad the other day, I became aware how beautiful this red bell pepper was, plopped amidst the cucumber peelings in my sink.  I watched the water flow over it, creating little splashes.

Do you ever take time to appreciate what some might feel are insignificant things?

Daily Haiku

Red, juicy, and proud
Amidst green discarded peels
Waiting for my knife
