…to realize that the best of life lies in the daily needs of existence, and to battle for them!

~ Zane Grey in “The Last of the Plainsmen”

    I guess I was in my twenties when I finally realized life does not run like a movie and the best things are all the little things that make up a day.

      Isn’t that the truth?! I get more enjoyment out of a quiet hour reading a good book than anything big and boisterous that might be “exciting” 🙂

        The epiphany came when I was looking at Vermeer’s paintings and wondering why I liked it so much when it was just a woman pouring milk from a jug or someone at a desk reading a letter. It is the mundane that can be the most profound.
