Ordinary (Extraordinary)

(from earlier this afternoon.)


work (an early shift, complete with a
nap in the car on my lunch), picking up

something for dinner, watering the plants
and doing some gardening.  Phone calls

with my parents and late afternoon errands.
Doing the dishes and tidying the kitchen--

and sometimes even the ordinary moments
can be extraordinary, you know.  I often

find myself viewing the world around me in
vibrant technicolor, basking in the simple

contentment of a walk down a brightly lit
sidewalk, the pleasure of quiet and empty

streets at 3:30 in the morning.  (Over and
over, I am the recipient of these great

gifts.  However did I get so lucky?)
