Uh oh it's dusty around here. Darn! I have just enough time and attention available to turn the lights on for a second and toss this on the table where I'll be able to find it later:

"'To recognize that everything is surprising is the first step toward recognizing that everything is a gift,' says Steindl-Rast"

quoted by Margaret Wheatley, in an excerpt sent by Nipun Mehta in the current Thought for the Week.
