I recently read somewhere about why people obsess over creating memories.
Why they get photoshoots done to announce to the world some of the most intimate things about their life. Those smiling selfies , the close up birthday pics , those long love-notes to each other on anniversaries , the milestones – big or small . We do that so that we can relieve not just the moment , but the way we feel in that moment.
Completely alive , achingly content , perfectly happy . Of all the world’s treasures the most priceless are ‘memories’ .
Of moments that you’d want to capture and freeze in the space and time continuum . So that you can come back and be ‘in them’ over and over again.
Isn’t that why we play ‘that’ song on loop , trying to find pieces of your story hidden in its carefully crafted words.
Or that corner bench in the park or that café , that picks you up and transports you like a malfunctioning time travel machine.
Some days , you want to write a post on your blog to just leave a mark , a hint , a clue to the future you.
To remind her of how happy she is , in this moment . Sipping her tea , reading happy shiny posts , listening to her song on loop and writing about moments . Just being.
Have you experienced such a Perfect Moment recently?
