As much as I'd like to join in every month with Alexa's Simply A Moment project, I find that I forget all too frequently, to stop for a minute and note my surroundings. It's not like I'm a stranger to meditation or being still, so I really have no excuse. I rely too much on my computer and all the reminders and alarms I set on it, rather than use my noggin.
This time around, the moment I saw Alexa's post, immediately I stopped and concentrated on what was happening right there and then, before any distractions could render me forgetful again.
Not every moment is packed full of riveting stories to share and I know that isn't the point of the project. Even the mundane is a riveting read when it's someone else's life. Not sure when it's my own. Maybe I will appreciate it more when the passage of time has passed. Five, ten, twenty years down the line, my daily life will be very different and this page will remind me of the difference between them.
If you enjoy reading short passages from people's lives, check out Alexa's blog and go to the links of all those who've contributed. Maybe it'll inspire you to stop and write something too.
Thanks for dropping by
