13. I feel that way. . .

Oh, about every week and a half as of late. That's one of the reasons that I joined DU.

Fortunately for me, when I'm ready to break apart or implode into an inert little ball, the Universe seems to provide me with what I call "a Grace Note". It's usually some little something like a beautiful play of light in some unexpected place that makes me stop and recognize beauty and wonder still exist.

Despite the fact that we have what'shisname to contend with, the Universe really IS bigger than him (or rather, his ego). Sometimes we need to look outward to find majesty, and sometimes we need to look inward to find something fascinating.

Have you ever really looked intently at an ordinary concrete sidewalk when the sun is shining on it? Because of the bits of quartz sand used in the mix, tiny crystals catch the light. I find it lovely to notice that the everyday pavement beneath my feet actually sparkles. But it only sparkles when I take the time to see it.
