My daily aphorisms. Reflections on life, death, beauty, change, love, happiness, etc., written in a poetic and whimsical style.
So true.I often marvel at the wonders of the brain's function. Only the incomprehensible mysteries of the universe can humble me as quickly and as thoroughly as the intricate workings of the the human brain. Heck, even the biology of insects amazes me.Has anyone read about the scientists in Japan that can control a beetle? They literally control it using a remote control! When I read about this I was excited and worried at the same time!Great aphorisms!
I am grateful for every day that I awake and find my mobility is not compromised. Being able to life an arm or leg when lifting either one does not result in pain makes me grin from ear to ear. :)
Hello boy!I'm organizing a virtual secret Santa on my blog and would just love it if you could take part.I haven't been broadcasting my poems because I just don't know where the 'broadcast' area went to!!! =SI'm still writingand still reading you.Take care and keep smiling.Kisses!
I was mixing some clay render in a cement mixer yesterday and while adding the water I saw a spider in the mix, by the time I had turned off the mixer the spider had been buried in the clay slurry. I waited and after about a minute the spider managed to make it to the surface, completely covered in sticky clay, as it crawled on to the stick I used to save it, in a second every drop of wet clingy clay flowed off the spider. I guess spiders are made that way so they dont get caught up in their webs. The whole of life is magic.
Well, it certainly was magic for me this morning! I was exhausted from yesterday's activities. At the last minute, our dogs were invited, so in between cooking turkey, stuffing, and veggies, I gave them each a bath so they wouldn't embarrass us at dinner. Rod watched football.
Isn't it ironic how we take for granted such things at which we should marvel?
It is a true miracle...something we take for granted knowing that it just works with no effort not realizing the magnitude of its brilliant function....our body and mind
It is true that many of the simplest things/abilities are the most beautiful or miraculous. The colors of a sunset, the smile of a child, the feeling of peaceful solitude on a quiet walk, the gentle touch of a loved one... one needs only to stop for a moment to take note of themselves and their surroundings to see a multitude of miracles.
Oh yes it sure is. With my husband's recent accident and consequent hip replacement surgery, I can truly appreciate the wonder of it....and of course, be grateful for the miracle of modern science too!
Arthritis has a way of reminding you that the magic is gone, but the movement is still there. I recommend Aspercreme or Tylenol to restore the magic.
The beautiful,intricate and astonishing design in nature and us --never ceases to amaze me =)
It is a mysterious creation. . . Thank you. ruma
Well, I wish you a great week!You have some photo ...with fog...on my blog!Regards!
I agree! Every bit of life and physical movement is magic!
How very true this is. I am totally amazed each and everyday the magic continues to work with and for me, which is why I reflect on this magic and the many I have received over the lasts 50 plus years. Great Job, NP
I don't know how much i interpret this but based on my present situation doing exercises, lifting my arm and leg is indeed magic. It made me feel awesomely good! But i don't know if it's all about that...thanks for sharing again NP!
There is always magic in the air ...you only need to open your eyes. :)
Isn't that the truth? When you think of every single little thing our bodies are capable of doing, it is truly magical (and awe-inspiring). The more I have learned of the human body, the more amazed I have become. Some things--science cannot explain. Melinda
yes. and that's why we should always be happy. if only for the fact that we can life our arm and leg.
I'd give an arm and leg for this gift. Mobility is magic.
