For the first time in a week the temperature as I enter the kitchen isn’t in the 4o’s. It looks like our winter preview is over for a while…Hello autumn and 70° highs once again.
The invariable mark of wisdom is seeing the miraculous in the common. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
When that quotation pooped up on my daily calendar I had to stop and stare. This morning as I write this I keep stopping to stare. Wow…What passes for wisdom around here is way too common. What is wisdom by the above definition is miraculous indeed.
A transcendental wisdom of the ages. We are born wise, because everything is miraculous to a child, have the wisdom trained out of us by society at large and the education system in particular…And if we are very, very lucky, at some point in our adult life we will again find the miracle in the common, everyday, seen it a million times, miraculous world around us…
It’s time for me to try and hone my miraculous eye. I need that inspiration right now…
