“I watch out for things. I listen, I pay some attention; and if I do it right, sometimes I can even make a little difference.”
Reading: Read “Paladin of the Lost Hour” by Harlan Ellison which you can find online here. As I will remind you each week, stay mindful in your reading and pay attention to where your mind strays as you read. Rather than immediately refocus on the reading, see if these “distractions” have something to tell you.
Stories Journal: In the spirit of “distractions” having something to tell us, take note of those your experience as you read. Follow at least one where it takes you. If it involves a story from your life, summarize that story in your journal.
Kind Action: This story focuses on our common humanity. After finishing the story, think how Billy and Gaspar are connected. Consider your connection to another person, ideally not someone you’d first consider in this way. Do something kind for that person.
