What do you see? What do you hear?……..I see a box; I see a rug;I see a flower on the Tree of Life; I touch a flower on the Tree of Life;I see a tray;I sense tea; I taste cake;I feel the shape of the tea-cup in my hand;the warmth of the teapot in the afternoon sunand I hear the quiet silence of my house on a winter’s afternoon.
Today, 27 June, is Helen Keller’s birthday. If you would like to honour this remarkable woman, spend a few moments honouring and treasuring each of your five senses, no matter how perfect or imperfect they may actually be.
Then enjoy some time with the wonderful people at Helen Keller International; and be inspired by my dear friend Victoria Quinn as she writes about the Human Yardstick; and, finally, check out Good Housekeeping and up date yourself on 10 Facts about Helen Keller. Did you know she loved dogs?
