Moments in Time

There are experiences in life when we would like to stop the world and suspend that moment in time, capture it in some way that we might be able to draw it back at a later time because right now the day is calling to us.

My husband and I had taken a walk and it was a day that the Colorado sky was that beautiful intense blue that I have only seen in the mountain air. I wanted the sky to stay just like that. I did not want to have to turn around on our walk and head back home, but it was time.

Time, in our minds, is what draws us away from those special moments; we are always hurrying on to the next thing on our list.

Embrace what is before you, take a picture in your mind, you may never come to that place again. We find that the simple things are the ones we most cherish.

I miss that Colorado blue sky... the first couple of years after I moved here, I would wake up crying after dreaming of that perfect shade of blue.

Perfect shade of blue, perfect description of it. I haven't seen anything like it anywhere else that I have ever been.
Kansas does a poor imitation.
