“Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”
– Thich Nhat Hanh
Miracles! They are all around us, constantly. I have had a few people ask me why I chose the Aurora Borealis for my background. My answer is, first of all because I think it’s so gorgeous! But beyond that – to witness the Northern Lights, in all it’s spectacular majesty is to experience a miracle.
While I was living in Alaska, no matter how many times I saw the Northern Lights, tears would come to my eyes and I would stop speechless and breathless, and just behold the beauty and – well the miracle of nature.
So I chose the Northern Lights to be the background for this blog to remind myself and hopefully others to stop for a moment and remember – as Thich Nhat Hanh reminds us – every day we are engaged in a miracle.
If you have had an experience witnessing the Northern Lights, I would love to hear about it.
As always, thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate it.
