Serendipity in a paradox 1. :
Feet are buried in the mud, enabling us
to peer closely at the lotus petals.
"If we are thinking only of the cup of tea that awaits us, we are incapable of realizing the miracle of life while standing at the sink
-actually incapable of living one minute of life."
(-paraphrased from the teachings of Thich Nhat Hahn)
