Fabulous is Where You Look for it

imageIt was a such a brief moment, but I felt warm inside when my wife smiled at me just before the waitress inserted a fresh rose into the vase on our table.

It is impossible for me to see through your eyes. I cannot feel or touch what you feel or touch. I do know my wife smiled as the rose stem slid into the holder. No one else was there to experience it. She was not looking into a mirror at the time, so she did not see her own smile. From my point of view, there was no one else in the world that saw what I saw.

Albert Einstein said, “I know the moon exists, even when I do not see it.” Or does it?

Did my wife see the smile on my face at the same time? Did she notice one of the rose petals tumble to the wooden table by the napkin?

The point  is that we do not live in a single universe, but many universes. At the same moment, I’m certain a homeless person in New York appreciated the attention of a passerby just before a few green bills were stuffed into his cup. I’m certain a child in a distant city was in awe of a gathering of pigeons that took flight from under his feet. I’m certain that somewhere a person was gazing into the night sky, wondering about his origins.

The previous examples are positive and inspiring. In our lives, we see and hear what we want to see and hear.

I wasn’t concerned my wine splashed on the sleeve of my suit.
I didn’t hear the grumbling of the adjacent table complaining about the slow service.
I wasn’t upset that the bill was higher than usual.

From the words of my dear friend, Radha Martinez, “Fabulous is where you look for it.”

This will be submitted to the Indianapolis police, where my birthmother was living at the time of her disappearance. I hope the relationships I have forged with my […]

The Anniversary Ring

“You love birds can sit here with me if you want,” the elderly man said to the young couple desperately looking for a vacant breakfast table. “I’ll be leaving soon, and it looks like these are the last empty chairs in the house.” The Garden Terrace was a romantic spot that peered across the Pacific […]

To whom are we praying?

Less than a few hours of oxygen remain on the small submersible that imprisons five passengers in the freezing North Atlantic. Millions of people are praying. Millions of people also believe in the power of prayer.  Surely this concentration of thought will lean toward a positive result. Surely with our focused intention our prayers will […]
