Sparkling or Still
by Ben Huberman
What’s your idea of a perfect day off: one during which you can quietly relax, doing nothing, or one with one fun activity lined up after the other? Tell us how you’d spend your time.
An ideal day consists of perfect moments, and for me those moments are:
Is laughing at jokes, though I am always afraid to laugh whole heartedly for fearing that there maybe pain at the end of a laugh.
Is when IB (grandson) sees me descending the stairs, and rushes to put his arms around my waist, and greet me.
Is when invited to a friend’s house to partake good food, and meet interesting people.
Is the time when I talk to my daughter, or my sister.
Is when I have plenty of books to read —- there are munchies at hand —– no interruptions, perfect!
Is seeing my son wishing me goodnight, before I sleep.
Perfect times and perfect moments
Those are the times we value
When they end, you want more
You long for them to continue
If there was a way to make them stretch
Would have been a gift to renew
