There is something educational about reentering your everyday life after having been away for a while. It stirs things up in a way that I think is entirely positive.

The quotidian has a way of disappearing before our eyes. Anything we do or see day in and day out becomes a sort of background blur.

But then you go away and come back, and suddenly you notice things. You realize how much you cherish the people you see every day. Little things that make your daily life joyful are no longer taken for granted.

But most of all you remember to appreciate having a place in this Universe. And that leads to the biggest reawakening of all: Every one of us is lucky simply to be here.
