Our Five Senses
Once again the 2 am Boogey man appears. In my case he isn't there to scare me but to flip the button on my brain so that all the gears and cogs and whatever else is in there are running at full speed --meanwhile my body says "go back to sleep"!
My thoughts wandered into the world of the five senses: sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste. Aren't they wonderful?! They basically help us survive in a world that isn't always very good for us. They also give the gift of all the joys our world has to offer. Without one or more or all of these senses our lives would be quite different.
Sounds like heavy thoughts for the middle of the night but you know me, the 'good' stuff usually outweighs the bad stuff.
Please bear with me while I spend a little time, thought and words on these five gifts of life that we have been given...
"Observe, record, tabulate, communicate. Use your five senses. Learn to see, learn to hear, learn to feel, learn to smell, and know that by practice alone you can become expert." - William Osler
