Last week I woke at oh dark thirty to drive to the middle of the State and pick up my son in a parking lot. Thankfully there was no brown paper bag or unmarked bills involved. But that meant that I was up before the sun, drank my coffee and wrote in my journal and I had to roll the trash bin to the curb. I was at the side of the road when I noticed how beautiful the sun was … of course, I only had my phone with me and my mind was only partially awake so this picture doesn’t show the beauty that made me take the picture.
Isn’t that always the case? We see something so heart breakingly beautiful and we try to capture the moment and the moment splashes through our fingertips like a wave.
There are some moments that are so special that capturing them would be like harnessing a hummingbird or nailing a butterfly to the board. It looses its luster when people-handled like that.
Fleeting moments are best kept in our hearts, for when they are analyzed we can then point out the problems.
Fleeting moments are best kept in the heart, for though I know the heart is a mere pump for blood … the idea is that it holds emotion as opposed to the logical brain. The brain looks at a sunrise and talks about air quality and the historical colors over certain cities. The heart looks and says — it was definitely worth waking up for!
