(this moment)

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

-inspired by Amanda Blake Soule of SouleMama

******************************************************

The why. I love this idea. The idea of pausing long enough to find simple gratitude with where we are, right now, in this moment. For quite some time I have felt the need to pay attention more. I will take hundreds of photos while traveling yet my camera often sits neglected when we are at home. I have been wanting to change that. Yes, I'll sketch, but so many moments slip by while I am doing something else. So by participating in (this moment) and posting here, I will, hopefully, be more inspired to work on this goal to gather and save those little moments. It worked for keeping a sketchbook. You all are great at motivating me. And besides, this will give you a break from all those paintings! If you're not familiar with Amanda's blog or her books, do take a moment to check them out. You will be inspired too!

Beautiful photo. I'm all for living in the moment and in your surroundings (instead of a computer, sadly). So when I'm not stuck at a computer, I try to notice everything around me too.
