This most amazing ordinary day

On the most ordinary and uneventful days I like to remind myself of e.e. cummings celebration and affirmation of the beauty and sacred which exists within the seemingly normal and ordinary. He wrote,

"i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes"

There is so much that is natural and infinite and that says 'yes' contained in each and every day and I often find deep pleasure in creating long lists at the end of my day of all that I encountered that could be considered unremarkable on the one hand and miraculous and beautiful and holy on the other.
