I just walked home from my kid’s school. There are tons of new little flowers and plants from the recent rain, and I was trying take it all in.

I remembered ‘the walking meditation’ and just let go of trying to see everything and tried to pay attention to just each next step without giving anything else too much priority.

When I was almost home I kicked a prickly pear cactus and it went through the top of my stupid Vibram shoes. I started paying attention to everything again.
