In Praise of an Ordinary Day

Today was a day that I will remember forever.
It was normal, average and wonderfully perfect.

I went to the gym, processed a few images, answered emails, worked, etc.  Nothing out of the ordinary there.  But in the middle of it all, The Guy came inside from working on his car for a coffee/chat break.  One thing led to another, and next thing I knew we were having a sing-a-long to Moulin Rouge.  Right there in the kitchen.

The Guy? Yeah he knows all the words, can sing (hubba hubba!) and perfectly harmonized with Ewan.  Singing opposite him along with Nicole Kidman was just too much fun.

Isn't is funny how you can experience something you never thought to be possible, and suddenly realize all your dreams are coming true?

I heart this man to pieces.


Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it may not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face into the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky and want, more than all the world, your return.
