Sunday in CinCity. The Stars are All Aligned and Neurochemicals Balanced for Someone Edition.
Why, who makes much of a miracle?
As to me I know of nothing else but miracles,
Whether I walk the streets of Manhattan,
Or dart my sight over the roofs of houses toward the sky,
Or wade with naked feet along the beach just in the edge of
Or stand under trees in the woods,
Or talk by day with any one I love, or sleep in the bed at night
with any one I love,
Or sit at table at dinner with the rest,
Or look at strangers opposite me riding in the car,
Or watch honey-bees busy around the hive of a summer
Or animals feeding in the fields,
Or birds, or the wonderfulness of insects in the air,
Or the wonderfulness of the sundown, or of stars shining so
quiet and bright,
Or the exquisite delicate thin curve of the new moon in spring;
These with the rest, one and all, are to me miracles,
The whole referring, yet each distinct and in its place.
To me every hour of the light and dark is a miracle,
Every cubic inch of space is a miracle,
Every square yard of the surface of the earth is spread with
Every foot of the interior swarms with the same.
Walking the dog last evening, it was the perfect summer night. Moon half full. Quiet. Three bats flying overhead. A great night for a game of Ghost in the Graveyard if one were just a bit younger and there were about six more people around, preferably about 9 or10 years old, the age when what you're really concerned about is a great hiding spot and listening out for "Ollie, Ollie, in-come-free."
No other agendas.
