Quiet Moments

“This-this was what made life: a moment of quiet, the water falling in the fountain, the girl’s voice…a moment of captured beauty. He who is truly wise will never permit such moments to escape.” – Roger Bannister

!!!Under Restoration!!!

IMG_1655The Mount Vernon monument is undergoing restoration this year, and though I walk past it nearly everyday, when I did so yesterday I was struck by a thought. Wouldn’t it be amazing if humans underwent restoration too, the kind of intentional introspection that leads to renewal and refinement of life goals, skills, relationships, lifestyles, or even how we dress and what we eat? Albeit we’d need multiple restorations over our lifetimes. Savor the little things in life and keep the stress at bay. Cheers!
