Moments of delight take many forms. Many of mine from the past few weeks have had little to do with light-filled photos. We moved my parents' things from the condo they have lived in for the past 18 years to their new apartment at Greencroft, a local retirement center.
So the moments of delight included the point where the house was all prepped for the movers to come in and complete the packing; not having another snowstorm on the day of the move; getting everything in to the new space; the chaos of two sisters unpacking; the last moments in an empty, swept condo; and the process of settling into the new space, where experiments with furniture arrangements and placement of artwork will continue until this new place also becomes home.
"Instructions for living a life:
Tell about it."
Mary Oliver in "Sometimes"
I've taken on a prayer practice of looking for the moments of light in each day, whether actual or metaphorical, and then writing or posting photos of what I find.
