“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 know there are those who believe what you see is what you get.  The world, as it is, simply is. Nothing more, nothing less.

But when I look around, I see wonder everywhere.

Warm, golden light piercing a cloud, splaying its fingers across the sky.

A child’s smile as he streaks across the yard on a warm spring day.

Shimmering light dancing across a lake, drawing designs in the ripples.

The soft scent of honeysuckle carried on an unexpected breeze.

When I choose to be still and listen to the world around me – truly listen, with more than just my ears – I hear the melody of the season.  Bird chatter becomes music, thunder rumbles like distant drums.

I choose to see the miracles.
