People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth.
Every day we are engaged in a miracle we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the curious eyes of a child, our own two eyes.
All is a miracle.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
Another beautiful passage that I was reminded of by Claudia’s gorgeous blog, A First Sip. Thich Nhat Hanh has been a favorite of mine since I read Peace is Every Step in college. My children like his work too. After Monday’s events in Boston, the notion of walking [running] on earth being a miracle resonates particularly deeply with me (this had been set as my quote for this day for weeks, but of course I read it differently now)
