It happens to me quite a bit. I have that feeling; I’m in just the right place at the right time. I see an old friend or a unique bird behavior or a ray of light at dusk that turns shrubs to flame. When that happens I try to take pause to marvel over my good fortune.
While I do prescribe to the belief that there’s plenty of wonder to go around if you just take a moment to look for it, those moments happen most frequently for me when I’m traveling and outdoors. My last trip to the desert is so full of those moments that I’ve been living a bit in the past; living in the memories of what a perfect life felt like during 9 days of desert trekking.
It’s taken hard work, patience, and time, for my life at home to begin revealing wonder-moments. So, as I practice finding the right place and time at home, I review my photos, share them, and my thoughts with you, reliving the splendor, dreaming of future journeys; essentially not minding the present.
Be warned, I don’t think I’m done righting myself quite yet.
