oasis



This morning seems as good as any to remember that day last week when it was one in the afternoon and you stopped by a place because you knew you were supposed to stop there and this was as good a time as any.

And you knew when you first heard the word multi-task it was time for long term care insurance because your brain is programmed to focus on one particular thing until it not longer exists.

So you had forgotten to eat.

That place where you stopped offered you a peanut butter sandwich and a seat and a conversation and thus a distraction from that one thing which had taken over your brain.

And you never knew a peanut butter sandwich could taste so great.




Today I am grateful for those spaces and people and lovely little moments in this world which offer us exactly what we didn't even know we needed. That day it was as simple as a peanut butter sandwich.

Oh, I loved this. The other day I ran out of deli stuff and packed my husband a peanut butter sandwhich for his lunch and forgot to tell him. He called about noon and said it was the most wonderful surprise. :)
