we live in miracles

“Life is misery and miraculous beauty. The word ‘miracle’ has been used too often and has lost its value. But we live in miracles. The thrushes in the park, the ducks drifting on the canals, the floating seagulls, but also the car on the highway, the mechanical digger in the polder and the large square apartment blocks. Whoever can take the time and the peace to observe is surprised and feels the void of his own being.”
~ Janwillem van de Wetering
