MORE GRACEFUL THAN MOST YET KNOW
It's such a privilege to be alive. And a human life passes so quickly.
I watched the opening of the day this morning as the sun in her trustable way, gently, and with such grace, pushed the darkness away. And in an equally trustable way, I just watched her once again as she always does, at the end of the day, gracefully give way to the... darkness. Or so it seems. Tonight as I took a moment to step out of the day's other activities so as to quiet myself, this sense of ease and order of the cosmos just opened up a deeper and more peaceful mindful presence and appreciation of the privilege of being alive and of it's brevity. Our time in beautiful earth school is limited. And it's good for us humans to remember that.
