This was the day I was given, and I have tried to meet it with a humble heart.

How little it seems. We seek perfection in our days, always wanting more for ourselves and our lives, and striving for goals unattainable. We live between the vast infinites of past and future in the thin shaft of light we call 'today.' And yet today is never enough.

More of the excerpt on site. Fantastic Minimalist Zen Garden type of photograph... I did not use it because I am sure it copyrighted....go to site to see it.

The whole article makes us understand this quotation by Kent Neburn:

Do we really need much more than this? To honor the dawn. To visit a garden. To talk to a friend. To contemplate a cloud. To cherish a meal. To bow our heads before the mystery of the day. Are these not enough? --Kent Neburn

Please note, comment, and forward.
