Splash du Jour: Monday

And when the event, the big change in your life, is simply an insight -- isn’t that a strange thing? That absolutely nothing changes except you see things differently and you’re less fearful and less anxious and generally stronger as a result; isn’t it amazing that a completely invisible thing in your head can feel realer than anything you’ve experienced before? You see things more clearly and you know that you’re seeing them more clearly. And it comes to you that this is what it means to love life, this is all anybody who talks seriously about God is ever talking about. Moments like this.
-- Jonathan Franzen, The Corrections --

Have a great Monday!

This quotation has me thinking. I'm used to recognizing actual life events as agents for change but not to crediting my own insights as such agents. But it's true. And such moments are precious and good.
