Write someone a letter today, won't you? I know I plan to. And, hey, email for my address if you want to write me. ;^) Have a marvelous day, friends.

an amazing sky
We went shopping yesterday to look for an Easter outfit for Sloane. I didn't want to schlep my purse the whole time - that sucker gets heavy. So, I put my wallet in my pocket and we shopped for several hours. At the end of our day, I realized that I had lost my wallet somewhere along the way. We spent nearly an hour revisiting each store to look around and ask about my wallet. No luck. My beautiful ostrich skin wallet that was a gift from my Dad - gone. Everything in it - gone. Me? Nearly in tears.
Today I was able to go to Macy's and pick up the wallet some kind soul had turned it in. Not a single thing was missing. My ordinary miracle? The integrity of strangers and a family who never teases or gets frustrated when I make stupid mistakes.

speaking of clouds...
This week, Popova asked, "But how does one become fully awake to the world, especially in our world, through which we increasingly sleepwalk on autopilot, in a trance of productivity? How awake are we, really, when we've stopped bowling over in awe at the everyday miracle of clouds?"
My brain began to hum as I read and reread that sentence. I'll take that challenge. I've written before about noticing. I've written about ordinary miracles. I've written about people being more important than productivity. And, as I read Popova's sentence, I thought, "Yes." Time to notice more. Time to stand in awe at ordinary miracles. So, this week, I'll be back every day recording an ordinary miracle. Won't you join me?
