To See the Small Things

One never took the time to savor the details; one said: another day, but always with the hidden knowledge that each day was unique and final, that there never would be a return, another time.

    I love the thought that each day is “unique and final”… Which makes it easier to treasure each one.

        The melancholic also have a very beautiful quality, as long as it doesn’t pull one too far under, it is a quality which should be appreciated.
