Friday

Sacred Moments

We inhabit ourselves without valuing ourselves, unable to see that
here, now, this very moment is sacred;
but once it's gone - its value is incontestable.
~Joyce Carol Oates
Oh, I am sooooo trying to value every moment!

I totally agree with the words of Joyce Carol Oates. I like to us the old Latin variation "Carpe Diem".

You bench looks like the perfect place for just that - to find that moment and to capture the day.

Thank you for "the plug"! ;-)

Ah, how beautiful of an area! So lush... it's almost unbelievably green!
I can only imagine the birds songs that one would hear sitting at this bench.

This photo makes me want to be in it...sitting on the bench, reading a book or staring out at whatever it is facing.

Great shot of the bench. Who wouldn't want to sit there and enjoy a moment of two of their day. :-)

This looks just like the place to sit and read a good book. Lovely image!
I keep forgetting Rune's bench posts until I see yours every week.

It looks like one of those places where you tell someone to "meet me at the lovely bench in the park." :c) I'd love to sit there and chat.

Beautiful peaceful looking spot Kerri... I'm sorry there's no benches from me this week... but I do have Fun With Fungi and a Horse and Quote on my blogs.

Nice spot for quiet contemplation. ;-)

Looks like a peaceful place to be alone with your thoughts and maybe a good book!

What a gorgeous area to sit on a bench and enjoy every moment! Lovely quote!

A truly evocative shot - one's imagination provides all sorts of possibilities; from a squirrel beneath the bench picking up left scraps, to a mother sitting for a few blissful moments of peace as she rocks the pram holding her sleeping baby....
