A moment. I have been practicing appreciating the present moment and on this morning there were several “moments”. It rained the other day and during my walk I noticed the dogwoods blooming, the azaleas, the Japanese maples and the last bows of the tulips. All of this viewed under the diffused light of a cloudy morning.
After taking the same walk all winter, to see the neighborhood come alive with spring is something I think I savor not because I am a photographer and practice “seeing”, but because of the sheer freshness of the colors.
I also believe that a deeper appreciation of the beauty of spring comes from the knowledge that it is fleeting and will soon be gone.
