#Real Life


Real life.

It's all real life. . . 
the sublime and the ridiculous,


the tragedy and the triumph.

And it all goes by so quickly.


If we're lucky, we take the time to notice
all those little moments -
the laughter
the irritation
the sweet smell of a newborn
the papery skin of a mother now in her 80s
the reminiscences of a father with death fast approaching
the smell of a new car
the feeling of tears welling up when we're touched by something
job losses and job gains



and we give thanks for having the opportunity
to be an embodied spiritual being.
