After multiple life-altering events that came in quick succession, I found myself sick, broken, and lost. I searched for anything that felt familiar or provided comfort. Nothing soothed my soul, broken heart, or troubled mind.

Looking for a way to gain emotional traction, I tried to remember events I could think about without becoming overwhelmed. I tried to concentrate on memories of family gatherings, memories of special celebrations, memories of those who attended these events. 

Quickly I found I couldn’t think about the events as a whole, but rather only as a small glimpse in time, minute-by-minute. After weeks of failure to take the tiniest step forward and somewhere between being despondent and sobbing, I had a quiet realization.

Life is composed of these tiny units of time, a minute, sixty seconds. A minute seems unassuming in and of itself. Ordinary and modest, cumulatively, they are what make up our life.

If not for my abiding faith in God and knowing He has a plan that goes beyond anything I could imagine, I feel I would remain emotionally lost. To help myself lessen the grief, I tried different things. I returned to my art; writing, painting, and photography. The world that I have known left me devastated, while art gave me a measure of hope.

From those efforts, I created this blog. A space with no past, no loss, only hope for something satisfying to my heart and soul. I hope you find treasures from my exploration of The Ordinary Minute.
