12/13/14

I just couldn’t let this date pass without a quick mention. I agree that it’s pretty darn cool to have our months, days, and years (in America, of course) line up nicely — it serves as a reminder of how chaotic life is and how we should take a moment (in this case, 24 hours) to appreciate these quirky little patterns that happen to come our way and slip into place on occasion. Like how you break for lunch and notice the time is 12:34 p.m. Or when your day couldn’t get any worse, and you look at the clock to see it’s 3:33 p.m., and 3 happens to be your favorite number! Or your wedding song comes on the radio when you and your spouse are in a heated argument. Or how just when you’re about to give up writing your novel because you can’t solve a plot knot and the answer comes to you in a heated flash while you’re driving to the supermarket — aha! Think of the world as all sorts of spinning circles — the circle of life; the revolution of the planets; the way the water swirls down the drain; merry-go-rounds and Ferris wheels; the passing of the years, January to January, and remember that every now and then those circles intersect just long enough to make us pause, to stop and think, Wow, isn’t that cool? That alone is worth smiling about today. So happy 12/13/14! I hope it’s a great one. :)
