Moments in Time

Today I watched Dan Rather doing The Big Interview with Lindsey Buckingham of Fleetwood Mac. Throughout the interview Lindsey kept telling Dan that the things that happened were just that moment in time when it was the right timing for what took place. It reminded me that all of life is just a collection of moments in time.

All of life is just moments in time
Experiences that stay forever in one’s mind
A childhood joy/trauma/ impression
The teacher who cared and made a difference
The first kiss //fireworks in your brain
Broken heart // pain of separation
Moments in time are all we have
A mosaic of color showing the whole
As we step back and look at the big picture.
A wedding //the birth of a child
Stresses of life // work // love
Shape our lives // cementing tiles in place
Permanent pieces fixed in time and space
The death of a parent // loss of a spouse
Wonderful joy of grandchildren shouts
Good friends who come and go
Each adding a sparkle to the whole
Cemented together with love and compassion
Leaving our star on the walk of time
