Once it chanced that I stood in the very abutment of a rainbow's arch, which filled the lower stratum of the atmosphere, tinging the grass and leaves around, and dazzling me as if I looked through colored crystal. It was a lake of rainbow light, in which, for a short while, I lived like a dolphin. If it had lasted longer it might have tinged my employments and life.
-Thoreau (from Walden)
My question to you and to myself today is when was the last time you were a dolphin? When was the last time the simplest moment transformed you? When was the last time that life was new, vivid, and made you feel exhilarated to be alive? I don't believe these moments are rare as they may seem and I don't think we have to go searching for them we just have to remember to look.
The truly beautiful things cannot be had but experienced and those things are always free.
