Tune Your Senses

Look outside a window.

Take note of the neighborhood you’re in, with all your senses. Sense the familiar or unfamiliar smells that are almost barely detectable. Hear the sounds that freely move and shift.

Look out at the space in front of you. Allow your eyes to unfocus. Take note of the colors that stand out to you. Remember them. Jot them down if you have to, give them names.

When you’re ready, take them back in.
