I step out into the early morning chill. Air crisp and pure. First snow of winter. Fields of scattered sparkling diamonds.
These moments. What words could really capture them?
Someday I will die and these moments will end. But now and here, I am present, aware, alive in the fullest sense. Here there is no ticking clock. No plans. No regrets.
Nothing but a communion with the cold air and the sparkling snow.
Immortal in the moment.
What a beautiful post. There’s nothing like the magic of the present moment and all the awareness it brings. Hoping 2013 is a wonderful year for you.
The silence is deafening, the beauty blinding, your words so aptly describe a gentle moment in time. Thank you so much!

Is this what it is to be a sentient being, aware and conscious, in the moment. I enjoy your great words, simple and contemplative. Thanks again Thomas. I look forward to more.
