Significance is only found where significance is given.
In a world where entropy will swallow everything and a twenty-four hour news cycle will rob your attention at any given moment, we can only have special moments by giving them to ourselves.
Last night my wife and I sat down to watch some TV together, not something terribly special (though we only watch TV once a week), but we made it special. We were getting to watch the most recent episode of Mad Men, so we dressed the part – pulling out our finest clothes. I even ended up in a tie for a while. We made cocktails. We laughed, talked and flirted. We made it special, because no one else was going to do that for us.
Today is only what you make of it.
