We’ve heard older citizen say, in my day, and then recount experiences of the past. But what if we linked aspects of our days with moments of intention or attention, what would a day become for us? There is a moment when we awaken from sleep. Do we groan? Oh no, do I have to? Do we jump out of bed to get going like a jack in the box? It’s probably different every day. A beautiful way to awaken is to remember what Abraham Heschel wrote: Just to be is a blessing. Just to live is holy. As a first awakening thought it can profoundly set the tone of the day.
