You know those moments when, just for a few seconds, everything is perfect, all your senses in bliss, and you realize how lucky you are? You know it won’t last but right now, in this instant, you’ve caught it, acknowledged it, and thereby brought the added dimension of conscious appreciation to the experience.
I had one of those ahhh moments today, a rainy, chilly Sunday morning. Leaving the supermarket, I got into my car with the Sunday NY Times, a cup of good coffee, and 20 minutes to spare before I had to leave for a meeting. It was the perfect moment, with the promise of coffee, a dip into the Book Review, and the coziness of being in a warm car on a chilly, rainy morning.
