“Wonder is that extravagant state of bliss induced by something new–The strange, astonishing, mysterious, and the unexpected. Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow…Nothing in particular and everything that surrounds us. Open your eyes, perk up your ears–suddenly you’ll find wondrous things in the most surprising places.” ~Sarah Ban Breathnach Romancing the Ordinary
A few nights ago I was feeling stressed so I decided to pile blankets and pillows in front of the fireplace, read some of my favorite book “Romancing the Ordinary” by Sarah Ban Breathnach, and have a glass of good wine. After a few minutes Miller cat wandered over and decided to join me. He had a lovely time playing with the book mark that was hanging out of my book. After enough of this aerobic activity, he fell asleep. Cats are true Zen masters. Play and sleep. I like it 😉
