The subtle things...

By Vichara

Sometimes we may sit and wonder if this, you know the life we have had so far, if this is it? Is what we see and hear and feel the rewards of this life? I think we sometimes try to quantify things beyond reason. We try to measure our life sometimes with the grand spectacles of what we see on TV and movies. The lavish happy endings with shiny things and a sweeping measure of orchestral music to accompany and underscore as the credits roll. But of course we know that this is not reality, at least for most of us. I believe because of this disillusioned vision we have been subjected to we sometimes miss out on the real rewards, the ones that can be so subtle we may miss them. For me at least I had one yesterday by seeing two Red-Whiskered Bulbuls birds in my sycamore tree. This was a rare sighting for me and another wonderful simple subtle reward in my ornithology life. For you it will be something completely different than this but at least try to be a little more cognizant of the subtle simple things as they too add to the rich tapestry of your life.
