Watching for the ripples


We did/didn’t (delete as appropriate) see that one coming….

Every day there is something that interrupts our little worlds.

Some are big, others not so, but they all have an impact.

However, I wonder if we’ve become so addicted to the splash that we’ve failed to take note of the ripples.

Our attention span is so short that we’re primed for the next one. And the next. And the next.

What would we see if we watched a little longer and saw a little further?

Yes, it would mean giving up on our splash-induced dopamine rush. And it would draw us into the issue, blurring the boundary between observation and involvement.

Then we’d have to make choices. Different for each of us, but decisions never the less.

And the reality is that waves do affect us more than we realise.

Passive consumption is a misnomer because we’re all impacted by the ongoing effect.

Especially when the ripples converge.

What are you noticing?
