I am sitting in my living room and the sun has shifted in the sky. It is hitting the window of the apartment across the way and is reflecting amazing light back through my big window and into my world. It shows up shadows of little things that you wouldn't have even noticed unless the light had revealed it.
The shape of the big bow around my lampshade and the statue of "the thinker" poised on the table below. The horizontal stripes on the wall are cast from the window blinds.
It's there for only a few minutes until the sun moves on in the sky and changes the shadows. It makes me think about how many things I have seen and felt that were little surprises in unlikely places. Those are lucky moments and my wish for you all today is that you see or feel a little surprise today to give you a "moment of pleasure" - whatever that may be for you.
Today I have been resting from a bout of the flu.. Nothing serious, but time to snooze and rest and to think. I got a lovely phonecall from an old friend who is miles away , and a caring phonecall from a friend closer by, a text message with the offer to buy me anything I need - even a magazine and I have had amazing light shine in through my very own window. Lot's of little moments today - and really, that's all anyones needs is just a few. Truly, life is how you make it. (Remind me that I said that in a week please)
