as if supported by the rays of the sun,
a bird settled on the fire escape, joy in the task of coffee,
joy accompanied me as I walked."

"For me, the vast marvel is to be alive.
For man, or for flowers or beast or bird,
the supreme triumph is to be most vividly and perfectly alive."

and a dialogue assumes different points of view.”

Ah, "Black Friday!"
Consumerism run riot.
Some commence a season of

simply enjoy this annual

Whatever your day holds,
take a moment
to pause
and look at where you've come.
