Thousands of Days

I was on the subway with a tourist, and when the subway went above ground someone pointed out some famous New York City landmarks.  Her eyes went wide like saucers.  "Wow, it's the Statue of Liberty!" "Wow, it's the Brooklyn Bridge!"

Afterwards, I was thinking about how religious people talk about all the miracles done by an invisible G-d.  The human body is complicated.  Stars and planets are pretty cool.  When you're young everything has that new-car shine to it, but when you get older it's only natural to take these things for granted.

A new sports bar opened up a few blocks from my house.  My brother's getting married on Wednesday.  What about the rest of us who don't have any red-letter events going on in our lives?
