And the pool was filled with water out of sunlight,
And the lotos rose, quietly, quietly,
The surface glittered out of heart of light,
-TS Eliot, “Burnt Norton,” Four Quartets
Here’s to moments of beauty in the mundane details, the light hitting just right, music that hits you right in the breastbone, the knowledge that you just took an amazing shot, sunsets on the water, the smell of spring, a great road stretching possibility to the horizon, the moments of connection, and all other good things.
(Happy Birthday, I hope you have all good things in overflowing fistfuls and bunches this year.)
