How do we keep the ‘routine’ out of our routines? How do we make each day, and indeed each moment fresh and unique? Let us today look for texture and contour in our activities. Let us seek something new in the people we encounter. Let us discover a new fact about their lives or their families. And let us take this new information, and process it to see what we might discover about ourselves. Be open to our senses, for they create the world in which we exist. For new information we give thanks. Blessed Be, and Amen.
