A Moment-ary Prologue
There are moments in everyone’s life when—even if only for a split second—the world seems to slow down. Feelings become deeper. Details in our surroundings become more pronounced. And, as if we’ve been nudged by the cosmos themselves, we may begin to have the feeling that somewhere, something deeply significant has taken place.
Like sparks from a flame, these magical bits of time are often too brief, too fleeting, to really register in our minds. But, every so often, when we slow down and reflect, we remember they happened. Not all of them have meaning, but some of them do, and when viewed against the tapestries of our lives woven during the seconds, days, and even years between, sometimes—if we’re lucky—we can begin to discover what they were trying to tell us.
