Lately, I saw this father and daughter singing together on Metaspoon. The guy played the guitar as they sang together. The daughter is probably about four or five years old. It is lovely to see them together.
Those aha moments when you smile and you laugh just because you are happy. Last Saturday, I was surprised when I saw Nissa and Nate at the gate. They took a commute from their place to ours just to see me. My son-in-law was left at home early that morning. They took their breakfast with us. I inquired if Nissa brought milk for Nate. She said she didn’t because Nate eats a lot during meals so he does not need to drink milk.
We played blocks and touching ball, priceless few hours of being together, with not a care in the world except to laugh , be merry and play. You put yourself being a child of four, carefree and happy. Picture-taking goes in the back seat with no attempt to bring your camera out. Or maybe simply, you forget. The things we do to make the moments something to remember, something to think about when they are gone.
I am reading a beautiful book. It is actually a contemporary love story. my third book of love stories since I began my 2017 reading challenge. It’s quite a nice change from the memoirs and historical books I am fond of reading. The plot may sometimes be exaggerated or overrated but it goes well with the overall appeal of the book. I am looking forward though to finishing Mary Oliver’s Upstream and Lang Leav’s Memories. The first one is a selection of essays by Mary Oliver while Memories is composed of poems by Lang Leav. I am reading them both in installment. a way to prolong the lovely prose and superb style of writing. Sometimes you wish you could write like they do – wishful thinking if I may say.
Those aha moments. Those moments when you are just enjoying everything. Those moments that are deeply felt in the heart. Those unforgettable moments. You want to make them last forever.
