Sunday Select A Sense

Sunday Select A Sense

Our five senses are: smell, touch, sight, taste and hearing.  And I would venture to say that most of us take them for granted.  How often do we really stop and savor something we are eating?  How often do we really listen to the varied and ever-changing sounds around us?  I think perhaps we appreciate our vision more than the other senses, when we are riveted by a beautiful sunset, or a spectacular pas de deux.

Today I suggest picking one of the senses and focusing on that particular one all day.  If you choose touch, be aware of the sensations when you touch a soft sweater, a smooth pebble, or just the feeling you get from pulling on a brand-new sock.

If you choose smell, take a walk and notice all the scents that surround you, and how they change as you pass by a rose bush, a freshly mowed lawn, or a coffee shop!

You get the idea.  Pick one a day and you will heighten your appreciation for the world – and the people - that surround you.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Secret #46
“ Select a sense.”
