I am reading Amy Tan's book, The Hundred Secret Senses. I'm 33 pages in, and already can't put it down.
Got me to thinking, we all have that extra bit of sixth sense. We seldom listen to our inner voice that warns us, makes our skin prickle in a dangerous situation. That little voice that whispers, BEWARE, and puts our senses on high alert.
In this day and age, we have to be aware of our surroundings. Suspicious characters. But we can't live in a bubble. We must live our lives and be aware.
Did you ever have a moment when you listened to your sixth sense, crossed the street, avoided a situation and consequently benefited you?
Many years ago we were on vacation with a 3year old and 7 year old. I went up to our room to retrieve something amd left Bill with the kids on the beach. I saw two suspicious characters get on the elevator, so I took the stairs.
When I entered the hotel room, I heard a male voice, Hey, let's get out of here."
I ran down to get Bill.
He ran upstairs and when he opened the door, he heard the guy say, "Good job."
He came to get me. I stepped in the room and heard these guys still talking. I was petrified. Then he lifted up Kyle's tractor with a dozen voice actions.
Talk about relief! We had to put that toy in the fridge because it wouldn't shut up.
