Looking out at the park across the way, the wild rain and wind made the Christmas tree in the distance appear to sparkle with a kind of fiery iridescence…

It reminded us of the unexpected magic that appears daily, even in difficult times. That all we need to experience it is the cultivation of a kind of openness, or better put, readiness, to catch moments of beauty or poetry or crazy magic or joy however fleeting they may be…what poet W.S. Di Piero called,

Iridescent readiness.
