I remember reading a book by SARK when I was in college, and she talked about walking around with a little net where she would capture all of these little miracles. She called it the “miracle moment collector”. That idea stuck with me, and over the years, as I have collected quotes, art, poetry, bits of goodness here, there and everywhere I realize that I am doing it too.
And I have been reminded recently that it is both a learned behavior, but also an incredible gift. And since I think the best thing to do with gifts is to share them I would like to start a new series on the blog when inspiration strikes where I will offer what has brought a smile, a tear, a laugh to my face, with the intent to pass along all the miracles that I have been collecting. I cast my net widely, you will never know what you will get… there are so many miracles in the world, and so much goodness…
So for today these things:
The loveliest video I have come across in a long time.
What happens when strangers meet in a ball pit.
I love listening to the way children tell stories. The way they breathe as they talk, the way they switch ideas midstream, the way that they giggle and guffaw. There is something so magical about following the mind of a child.
The Scared is Scared
This is a woman that I wish I knew, and I can only hope that my legacy will be as beautiful as hers.
I will admit, I now have a not so secret desire to hoard my cardboard boxes and come join them this summer. You don’t think they would mind if I joined in?
Now go find some goodness.
