A Mindful Moment

Updated: Jan 3

So many of us rush through our days, often missing the moments that mean the most. Distracted by phones (most often), we walk by the beauty that unfolds daily in front of us. Caught in the whirlwind of our lives and the constant clutter of external "noise", we pass by the birds calling, the breeze touching our cheeks, flowers blooming and fading, and laughter bubbling.... that can only come in moments of peace.


Having been caught in that cycle for much of my life, seeing and feeling it driven by anxiety, fear, loniliness and saddness, I am now grateful to say I try to open my eyes moment by moment to the world around me..not necessarily always successfully...I do try. Every morning I walk the fields and trails of Dusty Dog Farm with that objective. At least 6 dogs (often more), dear friends, a goat and a sheep accompany me.


Ideas for Cooper's Crossroad are often born in these mindful moments. Then become mixed with the world around me as they mature. Gently brought about by slowing down, watching, listening and taking it all in, they are the product of awareness.


Try to take a mindful moment daly. Slow down, walk the dog, feel the soft touch of fall approaching on your face, embrace the vibrant colors that we are so fortunate to have in New England this tme of year....and see what roads these mindful moments take YOU on.


Don't let the days go by unnoticed and enjoy the oncoming fall.

All my best,
