"I've got bills to pay," your brain grumbles, "the kitchen to clean, laundry to do, kids to run around after... my God, is it already that time?! I have to call the repair shop before five!"
Life gets in the way. Okay. That happens with everybody. But for just a few minutes today, stop and listen to that voice in your head.
You know the one I mean. That voice, the one that makes you look at cloud-shapes in the morning sky on the commute into work and think of what they could be. The voice that makes you wonder - when you see an airplane painting a long white stripe across the sky - who those people are up there, and where they're going, and what they're thinking. The voice that makes you stop and stare for a second when a particular shade of deep purple jumps out of a nearby sign. The voice that makes you look around at the stoplight, thinking about the people around you in their vehicles, living their lives in their sterile little car-aquariums.
That voice. You know which one I mean. It talks a lot, if you listen to it. And the more you listen, the more it talks.
Now here's a revelation:
It's YOUR voice. And it's a valid one.
Give it an ear.
