blog > A Day Like Any Other, And I Was There

Dec 19th, 2005

The wind is cold tonight. Clouds rolled in off the water and covered the hills, and took the day into winter. We rearranged the living room and prepared to cozy down for the weekend.

Heard a man say the following: “It was a day like any other, and I was there.” Something about that strikes me as profound, though I suppose others might think it only sounds profound. But I like it — sort of encapsulating the idea that the universe is so big that we don’t matter in that big picture, only to follow up with the cry of the individual: “I was there, and it mattered to me!”

It was a good day today.
