Can a single sentence change your perspective?

June 23, 2007 – Saturday

After thinking and drinking with my friends, it has come down to this: Life is sacred and beautiful. Life is amazing and fun. Don’t take anything for granted.

The cab driver who drove me home last week has family in the Ukraine–he plans to go see them sometime this fall. The man who fixed my air conditioner this week sat with Dave and I while we ate breakfast and chatted–he can’t stand York air conditioners; they are built with little thought to maintainence.

Claude, my fat cat, lives for the afternoons when he can go outside and eat grass. Gordon, my silly kitten, chases laser pens and is afraid of my electric stud finder. I met my friend’s two tortoises this weekend — their house is a hollowed out bookshelf turned on its side.

I parked at a meter two weeks ago with 20 minutes left on it — 20 minutes before the meter maids quit for the day. I answered a phone call from a number I didn’t recognize right before I had to work — it was my sister calling from Italy.

Celebrate it! What little something with a big story has happened on your watch?
