I’m glad it’s Lent because I am really forcing myself to reflect on how I want to improve myself and just grow in holiness.
I used to have this person in my life who was at one time very important and very close to me. This person and I were so similar in that we both just loved music. We preferred sitting at home and just listening to different sounds and artists and appreciating them instead of watching TV—and for him, reading books.
I think that part of me, the deep-listener, left me just as that person left my life. But I think I would like to cultivate that again, to bring simplicity back into my life.
Sitting and listening.
