Thought for the Day

They say that every snowflake is different.
If that were true, how could the world go on?
How could we ever get up off our knees?
How could we ever recover from the wonder of it?
~ Jeanette Winterson, British Novelist

It is the uniqueness of every snowflat, that keeps me filled with wonder -- great quote!

Such a beautiful quote. Yes, it is true, the more we open our eyes to the miraculous beauty of the world, the harder it is to get things "done"...but being and doing must go hand in hand, or the intention of doing becomes shallowed and shadowed.
