guiding thoughts

image found here.
"an enchanted life has many moments when the heart is overwhelmed with beauty and the imagination is electrified by some haunting quality in the world or by a spirit or voice speaking from deep within a thing, a place, or a person. enchantment may be a state of rapture and ecstasy in which the soul comes to the foreground, and the literal concerns of survival and daily preoccupation at least momentarily fade into the background." [t. moore]
winter is turning into spring in memphis and life seems to have an enchanted quality about it. i find myself being aroused out of sleep by the chirping of birds. i have stashed away my heavy parka. i go to work in the sunlight and come home with a couple hours still to enjoy. and it seems, during this transition, the daily grind becomes a little more tolerable. the preoccupation of bills and seeking happiness and what's-to-come fade into the warmth of spring. and it feels good. real good. 
may your week be enchanted.
