Needs Must, And So On

Today I’m thankful for small periods of perfection.

I was having a particularly trying day at work last week.  I left at midday to get food.  I mostly needed to get out of the building.  It was utterly perfect, for me, as soon as I stepped through the door.  A light rain had just started and the smell was intoxicating, especially mixed with the greenery around.  There’s a church on the other side of the road and their bell started ringing.  It was still and exquisite.  For about five seconds.  As I rounded the building I heard a hard-of-hearing colleague on a call.  They are lovely, but notably loud.  They’d agree with the sentiment.  I laughed harder than I’ve laughed in a while at the sheer absurdity of it.  It was I needed, when I needed it.
