….from an unlikely source. Last night while i was reading one of the books from a favorite mystery thriller author. I happened upon a phrase describing the life of one of it’s characters. I stopped cold and thought how wonderful to find this unexpected nugget of wisdom.


“And I knew, too, that to live a life……..a life almost mundane in the pleasure it derived from small happiness and the beauty of the familiar, but uncommon in the value it attached to them – was something to be envied”

Written by John Connolly ( Every Dead Thing )

  7. I try to appreciate life in that way. I never think of it as a way to be envied, but rather a way to truly live. Life is mostly made up of the small moments, I think.
