Small, Silent Moments...{iPhotos}

“My mind then wandered. I thought of this: I thought of how every day each of us experiences a few little moments that have just a bit more resonance than other moments—we hear a word that sticks in our mind—or maybe we have a small experience that pulls us out of ourselves, if only briefly—we share a hotel elevator with a bride in her veils, say, or a stranger gives us a piece of bread to feed to the mallard ducks in the lagoon; a small child starts a conversation with us in a Dairy Queen....

And if we were to collect these small moments in a notebook and save them over a period of months we would see certain trends emerge from our collection—certain voices would emerge that have been trying to speak through us. We would realize that we have been having another life altogether; one we didn’t even know was going on inside us. And maybe this other life is more important than the one we think of as being real—this clunky day-to-day world of furniture and noise and metal. So just maybe it is these small silent moments which are the true story-making events of our lives.”
― Douglas Coupland, Life After God

  4. Gen, I am so delighted you loved this. I know that you are one of the rare few who would actually stop and look at each image slowly. I love that about you.

  5. Ha! I TOTALLY did. I'm on my phone and I couldn't wait to see them all, so I embiggened the image and went through them slowly. Wish you were beside me so I could say 'what?! Is that Noah peeking over the roof? Is that Quinn with flowers in his hair? Oh Lucy how I love that dress on you!!!'
