Snapshot: This Moment. 9.16.10

{this moment}

Yesterday, I went for a hike near my house in the mid-afternoon. On my return to the car, at precisely 3 p.m., I heard chanting coming from the woods. A lovely lone male voice, the chanting sounded vaguely Middle Eastern, with haunting notes that were close together in the scale. I stopped and stood in the fog to listen. This man emerged from the woods — rainbow-laden, strewn with bells, tassels and pouches. Eyes closed and continuing to sing and (I took it) pray, he made a left turn and continued down the popular trail.

“This Moment” is a Friday ritual. A photo capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment that I wish to pause, savor and remember. It is inspired by Amanda Blake Soule and legions of lovely bloggers.

I hope you’ll be similarly inspired and leave a link with your own “moment.” I’d love to see it.

I hope you have a wonderful and soulful weekend.

  2. Hi Sarah! Great to see you. Yes, that’s Tennessee Valley. My new favorite hike is climbing up to the Coastal Trail and back down, where I heard and saw this lovely person on the way home. (Wednesday the views from the top were outrageous, so I returned yesterday with a camera and got a complete fog soup. Of course the hike was not without its beauty!)

  3. How lucky to be there right at the right time!

    • Yes, indeed! I do feel lucky when moments like that occur. They really offer a chance to be still and experience a particular time and place. It’s always great to see you! Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
