Do you ever have a moment when your thinking is instantaneously lucid and you have a deep appreciation of the world? I am not talking about sitting around for hours, days or weeks waiting for this moment. I mean when you’re in the middle of a chaotic moment or complete randomness where it suddenly dawns on you that life is beautiful. Not superficially beautiful but actually impressive, tenacious and magnificent.
About a week ago I sat on the train going into Manhattan listening to everything around me. It just wholly washed over me and I felt appreciation in the moment.
