A New Creation

We have it in our power to begin the world again.
Thomas Paine (1776)

Each day is a new beginning for each person in the Universe. No matter how dark life turns, no matter how long the previous night, the day comes eventually. I don't have to wake with a sunny attitude or a plastic smile, I just have to wake up. I may wake in the middle of a nightmare and greet light in confusion. I may come down slowly and rhythmically from fluffy clouds in a blue sky. Either way, each moment I am awake I begin my world one more time.
