They are always there

“Around us, life bursts with miracles--a glass of water, a ray of sunshine, a leaf, a caterpillar, a flower, laughter, raindrops. If you live in awareness, it is easy to see miracles everywhere. Each human being is a multiplicity of miracles. Eyes that see thousands of colors, shapes, and forms; ears that hear a bee flying or a thunderclap; a brain that ponders a speck of dust as easily as the entire cosmos; a heart that beats in rhythm with the heartbeat of all beings. When we are tired and feel discouraged by life's daily struggles, we may not notice these miracles, but they are always there.” 
~Thich Nhat Hahn

I'm starting this new year quietly, waiting.  Regrouping. Breathing. And re-reading those books that have meant the most to me.  The Stream of Life will be first. Steppenwolf will be next.  The works of Helene Cixous.  Thirsty, I am looking for miracles.  They are always there.  

{And I will drink the clear clean water for to quench my thirst}
