Miracle. All of It.

feet

Look at your feet. You are standing in the sky. When we think of the sky, we tend to look up, but the sky actually begins at the earth. We walk through it, yell into it, rake leaves, wash the dog, and drive cars in it. We breathe it deep within us. With every breath, we inhale millions of molecules of sky, heat them briefly, and then exhale them back into the world.

    Humbling thought to start the morning … ‘When we think of the sky, we tend to look up, but the sky actually begins at the earth. We walk through it, yell into it, rake leaves, wash the dog, and drive cars in it. We breathe it deep within us. ‘ … etc!! … WORD!!

  5. Glorious….. but then nearly(!) everything Einstein did and said made great sense…. l am sort of glad that he did get a very few things wrong though, if not he wd have been quite too God-alike.

  8. Although my toes are in no state to be looking through today, I can see the snow coming down. Now changing my perception and realizing that the sky is all around, I’m enjoying even more the flurries coming down. The sky is all around. The sky is all around. I shall remember that. The world is even more beautiful. The sky is all around. Kudos for giving me a more brilliant perception of our sky!
