Geschichte aus Comfortable with Uncertainty von Pema Chödrön:

A woman is running from tigers. She runs and she runs, and the tigers are getting closer and closer. She comes to the edge of a cliff. She sees a vine there, so she climbs down and holds on to it. Then she looks down and sees that there are tigers below her as well. At the same time, she notices a little mouse gnawing away at the vine to which she is clinging. She also sees a beautiful little bunch of strawberries emerging from a nearby clump of grass. She looks up, she looks down, and she looks at the mouse. Then she picks a strawberry, pops it in her mouth, and enjoys it thoroughly.

Wie oft hetze ich von Tigern getrieben durch das Leben und sehe die Erdbeeren nicht.

Doch manchmal schau ich auch hin:

Der Schmetterling oder ist es ein Nachtfalter, den ich gestern noch herumflattern sah,
lag heute morgen tot auf dem Küchentisch.

Gestern noch auf dem Hochzeitsflug, heute morgen tot im Abwaschtrog.
