7 Thoughts on the Word, Moment

  • I have been revisiting the music of Victoria Williams while spending moments in my studio, one song in particular has been resonating:  "This moment will never come again, I know it because it has never come before..."

  • Today is Mosaic Woman's birthday, along with my father-in-law's, along with three of my friends.  Is there a moment in your life that deserves more celebration?  It took me many years to see it this way.  In two days I will celebrate that there has been another full year of moments in my life. 

  • It is connected to .... 
    Latin mmentummovement, from *movimentum, from movreto move...       
    And thus moments have dimensions of motion and time and mass and direction.  Moments drive our lives to new places and various speeds depending upon the largeness (or smallness) of these factors.

  • I am reminded of something Ani Difranco once said that went something like this... Records are called records because they used to be recorded moments in time.  That was before technology meant a tune we are listening to may have been recorded over many days and molded into one.

  • "We do not remember days; we remember moments."  Cesare Pavese

  • May we imagine life as time and space unfolding.  You and I are blessed to be there for the moments.
