'Dig my Nails into the Earth'

Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are. Let me learn from you, love you, savour you, bless you before you depart. Let me not pass you by in quest of some rare and perfect tomorrow. Let me hold you while I may, for it will not always be so. One day I shall dig my nails into the earth, or bury my face in the pillow, or stretch myself taut, or raise my hands to the sky, and want , more than all the world, your return. ~ Mary Jean Irion

- Why will a deep yearning for those perfectly normal days eventually come into a person's life?
- What can you do to enrich your daily life in 2011?
