This book should be required reading for all human beings. “People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child—our own two eyes. All is a miracle.”  Stay present my friends, and remember to try and treat every person, place, and thing you encounter in this life with a sense of love and wonder.

— Peter
