The moment when everything is on track and things are purring along.

The moment when things suddenly go wrong.

The moment when things are inexplicable.

The moment when you can’t deal with it.

The moment when you walk away to be alone and seek serenity.

The moment when you put it behind you and are composed.

The moment when you meet again.

The moment when tears silently fall from the eyes of another.

The moment when you are taken aback by someone who rarely shows such emotion.

The moment when you are so touched and overwhelmed with your love for that person.

    This is just lovely. And profound. I love how eloquently you combine the yin and yang of life here.I try to teach my daughters that life is just moments. Make each one count and realize that they are fleeting.

  2. You captured those moments! I enjoyed those glimpses.

    Our lives are just filled with these moment. The moment I connected with so much today was this… The moment when tears silently fall from the eyes of another. xo

    So many moments pass that we don’t realize. Thanks for taking a moment to share – the good, the difficult, the love – those moments that we take for granted.

    Beautiful! I like the simple style of this piece. It’s simple but the repetition makes it powerful.

    I love that you stopped to focus on the moments this week. Such a good reminder that life is made up of so many good and bad moments! A favorite – the moment when you meet again! I’m headed home to OK for spring break and I love the moments of meeting again, often after a year of phone calls.

    What an inspiring caption of a moment. I’m new to writing and I appreciate your honesty in your writing and emotion.
