Nice one and so succinctly put! Jennie, NZ


Your beautiful reflection reminded me of one of my favorite Thomas Merton quotes….thank you!!!

“ In Louisville, at the corner of Fourth and Walnut, in the center of the shopping district, I was suddenly overwhelmed with the realization that I loved all these people, that they were mine and I theirs, that we could not be alien to one another even though we were total strangers. It was like waking from a dream of separateness, of spurious self-isolation in a special world. . . .

This sense of liberation from an illusory difference was such a relief and such a joy to me that I almost laughed out loud. . . . I have the immense joy of being man, a member of a race in which God Himself became incarnate. As if the sorrows and stupidities of the human condition could overwhelm me, now that I realize what we all are. And if only everybody could realize this! But it cannot be explained. There is no way of telling people that they are all walking around shining like the sun.”


Thank you for putting this moment in words, Corey and sharing it with us. A lovely reminder…💕


I really like your poetic style of writing

Thank you. I'm going to strive for more of those moments.

Wonderful, Corey! Thank you for sharing this and so many other things. Thank you also to Anna’s comment and sharing. Best to all.


You describe the moment so poetically and well. Reminds me of 'Our Town' when Emily goes back in time to her childhood, sees her mother who is busy and hardly noticing her and says, "It goes so fast. We don't have time to look at one another."


Thank you for sharing a moment in time.
