Daily Joys and Simple Pleasures

I was speaking with noted NPR radio host, Ben Merens, of Wisconsin Public Radio.  He referenced an experience of the previous day  – “noticing the signs.”  He read a random license plate and it seemed, at the time, like a message just for him.

This is an experience common to my days.  Sometimes even road signs seem well-timed, in terms of my train of thought or position or attitude.  Does that ever happen to you?  On the way to work this morning, I laughed out loud at my attitude.  I observed, in my  mind, that I was acting a little like my dog when she’s bent on barking.  A car pulled in front of me and their bumper sticker read,

WAG MORE.  BARK LESS.

Yes.  That’s the joy of a perfectly placed message.  Watch for signs.  They are everywhere if you are willing to see them.
