I discovered this quote at the public library yesterday. It’s from the Museum Guide from Hayden Plantetarium inside a novel by Lorrie Moore. I read it out loud and it seemed to catch in my throat. All week I’ve wanted to go home to Pennsylvania. All week I’ve imagined a different life. It seemed, as I read it again, that some great voice of wisdom gently whispered in my ear.
I turned to my daughter and read it to her.
“Do you know what that means?” I asked. “It means that no matter where you are, you have an equal chance to perceive the beauty of God.”
When I want to trade seats to find a better view, I’m going to sit tight and realize my equal chance to see–right where I am–the beautiful things God wants to show me.
