Spare a Minute…It’s Worth It!


An intriguingly illuminated cloud from ‘within’–maybe a hint for us to do the same?


When I saw this cumulus cloud outside our den window, I did my best to capture its briefly luminous nature.  It was one of the neatest, most simple, yet inviting views that I have ever experienced.  Like a slice of heaven that just opened up itself to one instance in time and I was fortunate enough to have been there to witness it.  It leaves one wondering how many other moments there are out there for us to participate in, if we allow ourselves a spare minute to really take a look at our surroundings?  To be present in time.  To enjoy what is.

To fully encapsulate the meaning of spare, I am going to intentionally allow this illuminated cloud and my sparing words to speak for themselves as a tribute to this week’s photo-challenge with a few final thoughts…

Does this post remind you of when you last you allowed yourself the opportunity to stop, breathe and take in such a glimmer of time?  Or, is it a reminder that you need to do so more often to illuminate your soul?  Either way, I would love to hear from YOU about the feelings that it elicits in you or about one of your enlightening moments in time.

Until then.
