We have a tendency to look at numbers: money, time, statistics. But life can not be caught in numbers. Life is life and everywhere around us. The birth of a child not more miraculous then seeds growing on a flower.

There is something very reassuring in this unstoppable and miraculous power of life. If we forget these miracles, life becomes alien and less fulfilling. Maybe we even start fearing life, but to speak with Bob Marley: “Have no fear… none of us can stop the time.”
