Usually I try to avoid posting Youtube links but this time I want to share one with you.
If you don't know the movie "Snow Cake" with Alan Rickman and Sigourney Weaver you should go out and fetch it on DVD.
I saw the film some years ago and just stumbled into my favorite scene. It is about a made-up word called 'Dazlious'.
What would the world be like if every single person has at least one dazlious-moment a day?
I know several people that are able to sense those dazlious moments in their lifes and that they don't take them for granted.
On the other hand I know way more folks that completely ignore all the "dazlioism" that surrounds them because the stressful problems of all-day life seem to be overwhelming.
One dazlious moments on my last weekend was just a dry leaf. It was captured by two almost invisible strings of a spider's web and seemed to hover in mid air. I could make it gently swing by just exhaling. For a second it was pure poetry and absolutely dazlious.
The world can't be much of a bad place if it creates details like that, can it?
If your life lacks dazlious moments these days you can simply slow down for a minute and think about a tiny little moment that made you smile today. I am pretty sure there is at least one.
