Yesterday and again today, I have experienced a sliver of interest here, a spark of excitement there, and a second of happiness burble to the surface of my heart. And although these proofs of life are, indeed, slippery and fleeting, they have appeared and been felt prior to absconding.

Take this morning for example. Irridescent bubbles left behind as the boiling water sluiced through the dark coffee grinds in the two cup melita. A visual gift that made me quickly retrieve my camera to try and capture the beauty. Returned. Too late. The moment had passed. Yet, the quickening of my heart stayed with me ~ inspired me ~ beckoned me to return to this life.

Slivers. A second here. and there. Reminders of a life worth living.
