June 20 Between 054People 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.
