The other day I came across this wonderful remark attributed to Iris Murdoch (the novelist and philosopher),
“People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.”
” … mad with joy … “
What am I missing because I am so use to seeing it? What around me has become so “ordinary” that I no longer see its wonder, its beauty, its freshness and its power to bring joy?
Can I journey through this day with my eyes and ears open as an visitor who wants, who needs, to “take it all in” and see all there is to see?
Give it a try. See what surprises you today and dont miss the flowers, whatever form they take.
