a better deal

What a great invention, red wine.
What great inventions,
all things beautiful and delicious.
What a marvelous adventure this ride of life.
With ups and downs.
The thrills and the scary stuff.
The anger, the pain, the depression, the loss.
Experiencing the highs and lows,
the mountaintops and the valleys.

A million myriad miracles
happening at each moment.

Why would we deny ourselves the richness of life?

We limit and protect ourselves; too scared to enjoy.
Looking away from what is in front of our very eyes.

How much we miss out on the infinite possibilities offered
when we imagine ourselves separate and incomplete.
Not seeing what is here right now,
but looking somewhere else for a better deal.
