Our present actualities are true blessings, and their emergence every day nothing short of miraculous in their particulars.

This observation continually reminds me to hold the virtual "pregnancy" of each and every moment with great reverence and respect, reminds me that its potential is always momentous, even if we cannot know or foresee the next moment until it arrives, and even if for the most part so many of our moments seem at first blush only humdrum and bland, and each day seemingly more or less like the next.
