Being in the Moment

20200101_103319

Being in the moment means noticing the beautiful golden light shining into the room

Being in the moment means grabbing the camera and wandering outside in bare feet

to capture the sunrise and share it with friends

Being in the moment is when the camera doesn’t work and

you have to rush back inside determined to find another before the moment is lost

Being in the moment is searching for batteries that are charged

then giving up and using the phone

Being in the moment is describing the calm frosty dawn and the golden light on a silent street

in an online Happy-New-Year-Message

before returning to the task of tidying up after the party and making the breakfast

Some say that being in the moment is about a loss of concentration

a failure to focus on the task or the breath or the mind freed of thoughts

But sometimes being in the moment is walking in the park on a Sunday morning by the river and wondering where does it come from, then walking its banks for three hours looking for a lost well

from whence life sprung from the ground

knowing that I can still follow the river to its destiny

where the waters of seas and oceans

meet a hidden spring that gave life to my city

Happy New Year, Dublin 2020
