Miracles

“There are only two ways to live your life.
One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

Albert Einstein


Today, more Noble Prize winners have been announced. Reminded me of Einstein, who was not only good for scientific theories that changed “our” views on matter and time. He also led a wild private life and is a great source for inspirational quotes.

I liken to think of life as a miracle. Sometimes there are rocks in the way. It takes effort to turn those rocks into insignificant pebbles.

I am reentering society, sort of, after being on the road for more than 4 months and living north of the arctic circle, where every day is a miracle. The solitude and remoteness, the weather, the landscape, and the small number of individuals that I encountered in that environment left me no choice, but marvel in the quality of every day. I could stayed up there and maybe I will return some day.

“Everyone should have themselves regularly overwhelmed by nature.”

George Harrison

I read today another mega mall is being built in New Jersey with 400 stores and the first indoor skiing area in the Western hemisphere. Really?

 

One of these days we’ll have the whole planet covered with concrete and steel…

 

I got up this morning before sunrise and watched the mountains come to life. Even my cold toes and ear lobes were overwhelmed by the amazing display of light and shadow. We don’t see the sun every day this time of the year. And the same scenery won’t repeat itself.

 

I believe that contributes to the amazement.

 

Here is to you, George.
