n. a kind of melancholic trance in which you become completely absorbed in vivid sensory details—raindrops skittering down a window, tall trees leaning in the wind, clouds of cream swirling in your coffee—briefly soaking in the experience of being alive, an act that is done purely for its own sake.

…let your mind wander and enjoy the ride.
To find those moments when everything falls quiet
and the words lose their meaning.
that all mixes together
until you can’t tell the difference between the ordinary and the epic.
And you stop waiting around for some other meaning to arrive.
you notice how delicate and fleeting it all seems…

  4. “Easy to find but impossible to hold onto” hence, we can only live in this moment! Beautiful reminder. 🙂

  5. Other than when you write (which I have often said are my favorite posts), I think this may be right up there.

  6. “Life is not a quest, an opportunity, or a story….”. There is something so freeing in that.

  7. “Easy to find, but impossible to hold on to”

    Yes indeed. I just wish I had a better idea of why…
