Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis presents:

Mindful Mondays, with Waylon Lewis.

“Every Monday, I offer a mindful reminder for our everyday life.” ~ Waylon Lewis 

Waylon H. Lewis reads Chapter 16 from “Things I would like to do with You” in honor of the newly released fifth edition of his bestselling first book. It’s red, again, and even more eco.

“I would like to know if you notice the breeze that comes through the window, or if you would like to sleep with the curtains open and blinds up or if you like to wear my pajamas (for wearing flannel pajamas two sizes too big is the right size), or if you teach or garden or need to work on the other end of our globe for a year. 

I would like you to know that when I work too long, I work for the world, and the world is the inheritance of our children— and our children, whether one or two or three or four or five or more of them, whether popular or bookish, or both…are your first love.” ~ Waylon H. Lewis, “Things I would like to do with You”

Watch Waylon’s Mindful Monday video this week:

“These words are words, only, but they help me trace the outlines of your as yet unknown face and invisible red heart, like an old fashioned frilly pressed paper Valentine card. You are in the high white cold hard mountains, and I am just below, in these Great, Golden Plains—beware: for I am coming for you.” ~ Waylon H. Lewis, “Things I would like to do with You”
