Boredom

I often hear people say they are bored or can’t find anything to do. I chose to look at a cloud today, which threw me into a pool of wonder. The imagination needs to be tickled from time to time, and the world is packed full of natural things that can stir the imagination.

Looking at a cloud made me realize how small I am in the world, and how even smaller my problems are. Look at a star and your whole universe may change.

The ability to dream and imagine is a gift that shouldn’t be squandered. If nothing else, maybe you get to drop the load you carry for a few moments, and that’s something worth while.
