Today, late in the afternoon, we were sitting on our back dock when we heard the beautiful and haunting sounds of our neighbour playing his bagpipes.
This chap comes up once every year or so, and when he does, we are given the gift of his free concert. We cannot see him behind the trees on his land, but the sound wafts across the water to our place a short distance away.
If I’ve learned anything about life – and I know there’s much to learn – it’s that the universe is constantly giving us moments of joy, beauty and wonder. Tonight’s concert was no exception.
The trick is to know it when it comes, to give thanks, and be grateful for the perfection of the moment. Thank you.
