“I could show and tell your students things they could gain from no other wizards.” –J.K. Rowling
Woot! Woot! It’s Show and Tell Day!
Yep, we adults need show and tell. Probably more than kindergarteners. Think how much closer we’d all be if, instead of getting together to talk about our dysfunctions, we got together to look at each other’s creations.
Why isn’t this a normal thing? Every week or so we should get together with families and friends and show them something we really like, something unique about us. We should bring in some doodle we made on the side of a Visa bill or something we thought up while waiting at the dry cleaners. Adults still think things up. We just don’t tell anyone. We don’t think it’s important. Not with lawns that need mowing and mufflers that need fixing.
So with that thought in mind, I’ve got three things to share, all sent by friends and readers of E-Squared:
This first picture is from the beautiful Maria Venardis who, while doing Experiment #2 that proves “You Impact the Field and Draw from It According to your Beliefs and Expectations,” made the intention to see a blue feather. She’d more or less forgotten about it, was out walking with a friend at the park and voila! look what showed up:
Second item for today’s Show and Tell is from a doctor friend of mine who was also doing the Volkswagen Jetta experiment.
Here’s what he said:
“I counted 80+ beige colored cars driving down Mass Street. Finally got tired of counting them. Decided to look for yellow butterflies a few days later. Can you appreciate my jaw-dropping moment when I went in to see an elderly female patient with hip pain.”
Here’s what she was wearing on the lapel of her sweater:
Last story is from another reader (sorry no pictures with this one)
“I have to tell you about the Abracadabra Principle (That’s the one that proves, “Whatever you Focus on Expands). I asked for flowers. Something I never get. I had to receive them by 9:20 this morning. I never thought I wouldn’t get them, I knew some how I would. Around 7:30 this morning one of the women I work with handed me a large strip of white paper and said, “here’s a bouquet of flowers for you.” Something she has never done and she said she doesn’t know why she did it. I laughed and then told her on break why it was so funny. Beautiful white flowers, how cool.”
And lastly, remember that wonderful “Ode to Money” written last week by Felicia Spahr at www.FelsGotSwag.com?
Well, today, she’s featuring a blog post from me, an excerpt I guess you could say, from my upcoming project. Check it out here:
And this picture, that I failed to run last Monday, is the incomparable Fel of said named blog in the flesh. Isn’t she gorgeous?
Thanks everybody for your amazing emails and stories and pictures. I love you all and am so glad we’re connected.
