“My friend, let’s not think of tomorrow, but let’s enjoy this fleeting moment of life.” – Omar Khayyam
As always, the Friday Edition (posted somewhat late this week) combines a quote with a favorite photo. I tailor these to the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge theme, which this week is “Fleeting Moment”.
I spent this past weekend up in the Catskills in New York state, attending a weekend meditation retreat run by an amazing organization called “Peace Village“. It was a life-altering experience; I will share more about it this coming week.
My fleeting moment of “street photography” came yesterday, on Saturday, when my friend Anne and I were taking a walk after lunch. As we meandered around the pond by our lodge, we came across “the other Anne”, a very sweet, very busy professional woman from Baltimore, who was also attending the meditation weekend. She and I had already bonded over our shared need to “get rid of the chatter in our heads” both the night before and earlier that morning, so I knew who she was when we came upon her, contemplating the peace of that little pond.
Anne looked so peaceful, and so in tune with the atmosphere and the surroundings, that I knew immediately that this was my “fleeting moment”.
