Do you ever have “wow” moments? You know, those times when your little brain just lights up and sort of quivers from something you’ve just seen or heard or thought about? I seem to do that a lot. I don’t know why. I just do. And it feels good.
Like this morning. I
was sitting on the couch enjoying my second cup of coffee (it usually takes at
least two cups before I can even consider being semi-functional) when I decided
to reach back into the old memory bank and do a review of file ACD-22-46857-36-
After making a minor correction to the file designation, I was able to retrieve the one I was hoping for. I also decided to bring up the associated files on “Awe”, “Amazement” and “Thanksgiving”. It seemed to be a logical package to me.
I like to review this file periodically. It has never failed to give me a pronounced case of brain quivers. Here’s why. First, I find it absolutely incomprehensible that I could exist as a living, breathing, semi-functional animal-type organism. I’m alive – right here, right now - on this insignificant planet we call earth. I think about how I started out as a single cell – a tiny speck you can’t even see – and grew all of the other jillion cells and body parts out of that. I am. WOW!
As a result, I can eat, think, stand, scratch an itch and do thousands of things even the best and most complicated computers can’t do. I can communicate with other creatures like myself – sometimes with even an acceptable level of mutual understanding (teenagers excepted). I can see, hear, taste, smell and feel. OK, so I don’t do any of that as well as I used to but what the heck, I’m starting to wear out a bit. Oh yeah, we do that too, don’t we? Wear out, that is. And then someday I won’t be here any more. This old bod will revert back to its basic molecules.
Gosh. I wasn’t here for a long, long time. Now I am for just a short time. Then – I won’t be again. WOW! Brain quiver!
Since I’m only gonna be here for a short time, I wonder if there isn’t something I should be doing to sort of say “Thanks” and make a little contribution to this neat world I live in. I know. Maybe I could write a short article about being alive. Yeah. I’ll do that. I think I’ll title it “WOW”. Now if I could just think of a way to start it out…
