The world is a circle. And colorful at that.

While I guess this applies to the globe itself, if you loosen your definition of the term circle. I’m using this metaphorically. In that, all things have a way of coming back around, and everything is interconnected more than we realize.

In a recent reading, Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within by Natalie Goldberg, I’d forgotten how heavily the author drew on Buddhist principles and practices in her instruction.

One specific passage stuck out: “My friend who is a Buddhist said once after coming out of a meditation retreat, ‘The colors were so much more vibrant afterward.” Her meditation teacher said, “When you are present, the world is truly alive.’”

Be present, and seek out the vibrancy of the everyday.
