Today’s inspiration from The Writer’s Almanac

How can you not be?
Today, for example, Jane
Kenyon, who wrote about
prodigals returned
and Margaret Wise Brown who
looked around a great green room
and saw a telephone and a red balloon
and it’s World Turtle Day
when we are all encouraged
to wear green and honor
a creature whose cells don’t age
as ours do. So Jane and Margaret
(and so many others of our kind)
go on ahead and leave us here
for a short while. Barely long enough
to notice all there is to be amazed by
