Momentarily Thoughtful

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it..

– Thich Nhat Hahn (Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, teacher, author, poet and peace activist)

 

When I think about a moment, I always think of something good. I guess I think of a moment to be savoured. Meanwhile, a moment can be any point of reference in time, any particular occurrence can be a moment. But as the above quote says, you just need to pay attention and you will find the joy in each moment.

  1. Beautiful framing by beach grass and post. Almost makes me homesick for Potato Point!

      1. Potato Point is on the south coast of NSW. No potatoes there, although once, I believe a shipping point for potatoes. Now we grow surfers and retirees – I’m the latter, my son the former!

    Great picture and quote….so true too! Hey Desley I have a question and don’t wish to take it up here on your post. Is there a place where it connects directly to your email? It’s a question on posting photos on WP.
