At any given moment, any given thing can happen – any given experience can be given to us.
They just show up.
Little moments. Someone calls, writes, or when a conversation over lunch takes on new dimensions. I can imagine looking inside my brain, like peering in the back of dusty 50’s era TV (remember cathode tubes?). Lights and sparks would flash and fade. Ideas would flash and fade. Some take us down new paths, some down rabbit holes, never getting back time we spend chasing ideas …
Just as fresh, morning comes. More flashes, more fading.
When day is done, we know someone we didn’t know before, we know something we never knew before and we have a perspective nobody had before.
Not bad for a day’s work.
Not bad at all …

Mark,I appreciate receiving your daily missives. Today's hit a cord. With good health and good friends there is no excuse for not being "fine". Regards, ADL, Calgary, AB
Mark! You Rock! Thanks! I needed that! Sharing your kick in the pants - it worked for me too! I shall get back to my promo, instead of being depressed for being an unemployed Instructional Designer. Love your posts!, BK, Calgary, AB
Good muse. For those of us who have been in situations where "it can't get any worse and then it does", there is a wonderful gift in that it is really hard to have a bad day, PL, Calgary, AB
