Focus

This is the mellow version of me, choosing my focus for the day.   

Do I want to see every detail,   

 every changing nuance?
 The structure of the things or people in front of me?  Maybe I'd appreciate it all more. 

But if it amplifies my imperfections,

distorts the size and severity of things...

if it personalizes the imperfections around me that aren't mine to change,

then it changes and legitimizes my mood.  And there's a thin line between mellow and melancholy.

I have to look farther than that for something good to expect today.


Lately,  I never wear my glasses.  I'm getting used to blur.

I use this one a lot: Philippians 4:8

...whatever things are true, whatever things are honest, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
