"Learning to live and living to learn"
As always, I began the day with an early morning stroll with my dog. Lily is a small Jack Russell Terrier who "knows what she likes and likes what she knows". If you are familiar with the breed, you will know what I mean.
As we made our way through the park, I began to obsess about our world in turmoil and the increasing ambiguity as to what the future will hold. Lily, for her part, was obsessed only with the immediate smells within "nose-range" and the rest of the world, whether in the present or future, simply didn't exist.
So I wondered, what can we learn from Lily? Perhaps the best way to manage the ambiguity we face arising from a world in turmoil is to focus on that which is within "nose-range". Focus on what you can do now to deal with the ambiguity and help those around you to do the same.
I'm helping Lily to face the challenges of the day just as she helps me to maintain perspective.
