I’m not a ‘paws’ person I have to say. I do try; don’t get me wrong I recently spent a week looking after my son’s house and his little dog. A small white fluffy dog called Ted who was always so pleased to be chasing a tennis ball up and down the back yard, sleep and then do it all over again. So I think for my first foray into being a dog person I don’t think we did so bad after all we did both like each other at the end of the week….
Cats are another thing for me. I’m not so keen on them as I see them as predators around where I live decimating the native bird population who obviously taste a whole lot better than the introduced species who thrive.
‘Pause’ on the other hand makes me salivate. And I mean that in the nicest possible way. As a drama teacher I taught my students the value of a pause. It provided so much in performance foremost being it added meaning….a well placed pause was often worth a hundred words, you just can’t get enough of a good pause….
Just think too of the value of pausing a moment to consider something, like the value or otherwise of a post such as this…..pausing is what we do a lot of in life for a whole bunch of good reasons rather than jump in and make some rash decision we stop, pause, see a consequence loom in front of us and then we have time to re-think our strategy.
The humble pause has such value in our lives I think I may embrace it as a New Years resolution for as we know to pause or not to pause, that is the question or is it the answer? I’ll pause a moment and consider….
