Day 347: Savoring the Moment

Day 347: Savoring the Moment

Moments before this shot, this bird had just caught his breakfast. Rather than gulping down a juicy insect or flying away, it took some time to (what seemed to me) savor the appreciate the effort that went into the catch and to savor the moment. As I watch myself and those around me, I often wonder how often we take time to savor the moment. Are we fully present while eating, talking, sharing, doing? How much time do we take for reflection and/or gratitude? It is fascinating to see how much nature has to teach us when we open ourselves up to her teachings!
