that wise guy

There are two ways to live:
you can live as if nothing is a miracle;
you can live as if everything is a miracle.

— Albert Einstein

I used to live entranced by the everyday miracles of this natural world. How did I lose that capacity??

  1. I felt like you when I was still living in New York. But in the year since I moved here to Maine, that feeling of small miracles every day – a flower, a butterfly, the cat being silly, a raucous thunderstorm – has returned.

    Sometimes it’s hard to hold back a tear at the beauty of it all.

  2. Ah,I remember that awe-full feeling. I live in the middle of nature now. Unfortunately, I never seem to have a moment to sit and absorb what’s right in front of me. “Elaine!” “Elaine!” she calls. I feel like I’m caught in that ending scene of The Graduate!
