    Of late...I tend to wake up content and grateful... Why ! .. Well for starters the ceiling didn't fall in on me and bury me alive during the night. The bit I value is to be able to continue with my quest to make a positive difference in the world. I don't give any human the privilege to make me angry or upset. Doesn't mean I'm incapable of it though !

    I get lost in thoughts about the universe, where we are and what we don’t know quite often. It’s beautiful to me, the vastness, the power and the places that we can only conjure for now.

    I’m appreciative of life as I look back at those who aren’t here any more. My dad, my grandparents. A handful of friends. My best friend’s wife to be, that left way too early. Those are lives that are lived, in varying degrees. Each came and went with lessons for us that remain to ponder, apply and use to make better. I appreciate the lessons and love they left me.

    The warm brown glow of my wife’s eyes, framed with the soft beginnings of a wrinkle at the corners, a reminder of time that triggers contemplation of our entry into mid-life as the last of our 30’s slip by. It makes me sad, but appreciative. That shared stare reminds me that this moment is just that - a moment, and is best at least as a moment fully lived and appreciated.

    As we age together, we do silly things. We spontaneously dance in the kitchen. We have funny, non-relevant nicknames for each other. We sometimes get to work a few minutes late on purpose, because time spent eating breakfast together meant more in the moment than being on time. We work out together, something we both hate but at least hate together. And we try much harder to be tolerant of our differences.

    These things, and the angst as pages turn by and bring closer our inevitable epilogue, make me appreciate life.

    I just think existence in itself is beautiful.

    We are capable of absolutely anything and everything. Anytime supposed limits have been accepted by people, they've been broken.

    Possibility and beauty is literally endless.
