A Momentary Pause

A Momentary Pause

Deceivingly bright sun…bone-penetrating coldness…snow covered backyard…winter light on the wooden floor…gentle dance of the window curtain…the house is sedate…I begin this mid-morning without anticipation…without trepidation…and I feel like inhabiting a liminal space…an in between pause in a time of unknowing…time moves…it is just what it is…where I am right now is where I am supposed to be in the exact time and situation, in the very fiber of existence…an infinitesimal part of a larger story…I remember photographing a twig protruding from a carpet of snow…because I see beauty…it is beautiful the way I see it, as it is…perhaps it is the fruit of deep seeing…then I remember I am sitting on a couch…and then my mind swings to that twig…and then back to myself like a pendulum…time to leave…and live…the walk is long…

    A very fine post, Virgilio, exploring physics…..the intimate osmosis of trust

    The beauty of a simple twig caught in your momentary pause, very peaceful, and very much alive with your deep seeing.
