Muse: Appreciating the Little Things in Life
It has long been an axiom of mine that the little things are infinitely the most important.Arthur Conan Doyle via BrainyQuotes.

Saturday, October 29, 2011 brought about a record breaking snow storm across the Northeast. Initially it made me really happy. I couldn't get up to Killington that morning for opening day of the 2011-12 ski season, and I thought it was great the snow was coming to me. The happiness the snow brought me quickly faded as I realized the damage the storm brought to Connecticut. Many beautiful trees came down on power lines, blocked roads and damaged homes.
After 11 days of no power yesterday, Wednesday, November 8, 2011 at 6 AM my power came back on. It truly helped me appreciate many of the things I take for granted. Flipping a switch to have lights, or work an appliance, heat, hot water, the ability to drive safely, efficiantly from place to place, and to be finally back online. Yes it is the little things that are most important.
