I was driving into Seattle on a recent morning. Rounding a curve in the road, I suddenly was looking directly at the full moon setting over Fisherman’s Terminal with the Olympic Mountains as a backdrop.
Definitely a “WOW” moment. We all have them occasionally. When we’re least expecting, a moment of intense awareness as we notice nature in its most glorious manifestation. Usually something most simple. A special tree, unique cloud, brightly colored bird. A moment that turns our ordinary ‘take it for granted’, ‘don’t notice it existent’ into a spectacular display of nature.
During those WOW moments we are ‘in the moment’, fully engaged and aware. Time seems to pause. Are we noticing nature or has nature reached out and touched us?
Savor those moments and Be Amazed…
