A fleeting moment

Who will tell whether one happy moment of love
or the joy of breathing or walking on a bright morning
and smelling the fresh air,
is not worth all the suffering
and effort which life implies.

~Erich Fromm

These photos were snapped late Tuesday afternoon while nuking my Lean Cuisine lunch-- a quick break from unending phone calls for interviews and tirelessly typing away at stories. A look out the window revealed a beautiful show put on by clouds passing by and, though fleeting, the brief moment I spent standing on my balcony, gazing up, simply and surely lifted my spirits.

Beautiful. I love moments like that - they come when least expected and also when most needed.

That is absolutely gorgeous. Sometimes I'm amazed that we can find such beautiful images in nature. It's a reminder to me that there's so much more in life.
