Thought for the Day: In a split second of eternity, everything is changed, transfigured

Today's thought for the day is inspired by my friend Indu Muralidharan's post on Facebook. 

Here it goes: “In a split second of eternity, everything is changed, transfigured. A few bars of music, rising from an unfamiliar place, a touch of perfection in the flow of human dealings--I lean my head slowly to one side, reflect on the camellia on the moss on the temple, reflect on a cup of tea, while outside the wind is rustling foliage, the forward rush of life is crystallized in a brilliant jewel of a moment that knows neither projects nor future, human destiny is rescued from the pale succession of days, glows with light at last and, surpassing time, warms my tranquil heart. ” ― Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog

This is the kind of thought that I want to start my day with and the kind of book that I want to live in.
