Daily Joys and Simple Pleasures

I found myself looking about the tasks of my day and I casually assessed, “Well, this is just an ordinary day.”

I immediately countered that observation.  June 25, 2014.  Unrepeatable.  Never to be seen again. These seconds,as they sweep past, will never whooosh in precisely the same configuration.  Units of measure that we have  named time, unfold, without tending, all over the world. Billions of people at this precise moment are making choices and dispensing decisions that will have unalterable impact on the planet.  And some of those seemingly  unrelated choices will create, ultimately, an intersection of consequence half a world away.

That’s not to be classified as ordinary.  Anything but.  I answer my own question, “No. That we are alive in it makes the day extraordinary.”

Have an extraordinary day.
