This Moment



scan0106
A Friday Ritual. A photo- no words-capturing a moment from the week. A simple extraordinary moment.A moment to pause, savor, and remember.
“This Moment” is a ritual found on”Life inspired” by The Wee Man and Almost There by Sarah Jane. Which I confiscated from “Raising Amelie” by Alejandro.

I have to admit that I was not at the coast today. I was scanning my mother’s photos for her blog. I came across this photo. It is near Charleston, Oregon, close to where I was raised and this is a common memory for me. I spent the first 24 years of my life on the coast of Oregon and it is still my haven. A place where I find sanity.
