Good Night, Good Dreams...and Namaste.


“Sometimes it's the same moments that take your breath away that breathe purpose and love back into your life.”  ― Steve Maraboli
Oh, dear... the light from my window has certainly faded. The birds are quietly tucked away in their nests...and even dear Nudnick is snoring loudly from the softer billowings of his puppy pillow.

These days often slip quickly past. How many of moments in your day today will you...some time from now...look back to with a smile in your heart, and gratitude that this moment picked *you*...?

I wanted to share this following passage with you. By author, Douglas Couplandfor some reason, they resonate with me on this evening...and I feel most compelled to share them with you. Much love, and namaste.

“My mind then wandered. I thought of this: I thought of how every day each of us experiences a few little moments that have just a bit more resonance than other moments—we hear a word that sticks in our mind—or maybe we have a small experience that pulls us out of ourselves, if only briefly—we share a hotel elevator with a bride in her veils, say, or a stranger gives us a piece of bread to feed to the mallard ducks in the lagoon; a small child starts a conversation with us in a Dairy Queen—or we have an episode like the one I had with the M&M cars back at the Husky station.

And if we were to collect these small moments in a notebook and save them over a period of months we would see certain trends emerge from our collection—certain voices would emerge that have been trying to speak through us. We would realize that we have been having another life altogether; one we didn’t even know was going on inside us. And maybe this other life is more important than the one we think of as being real—this clunky day-to-day world of furniture and noise and metal. So just maybe it is these small silent moments which are the true story-making events of our lives.”
