Lately I've been high on the sunshine, but not necessarily high on life. The clouds in the early morning skies have spoken of this fact as they meander in baby blanket colors across the horizon, content to just be and then float on. I blame my ennui on the weather, fretful dreams the night before, or too much popcorn but really I am merely waiting for something wonderful to emerge from under the melting snow. So, when I read the fortune cookie message frozen under my front tire this morning I knew the gist of it was for me, in spite the triteness that only mass produced fortune cookies can contain:

You cannot love life until you live the life you love.

Turning the message over I found, lucky me, that I could not only catch a glimpse of the universe I could learn Chinese too. . .or at least, the words for roast duck (kao ya) That works for me! Life is good if not a trifle mysterious.

how serendipitous to find a frozen fortune beneath your tire whilst pondering what might emerge from the snow...so are you loving the life you are living?...I don't know I think it works in both directions, if you can be awed by the simple things in life, then your own life is lifted up too.
