That fleeting graceful moment when the #present turns into a #memory

That fleeting graceful moment when the #present turns into a #memory

Ever so light flower petals, gracefully flowing in the summer breeze. I remember the absolute joy and wonder I experienced watching this in the Galliera garden in Paris.

This is why I had this deja-vu feeling when the vibrant colors of purple, red and orange of bougainvillea fallen petals were scattered on the intense green of the lawn at my son’s school here in North Africa.

I could feel the sweet and sour taste of the present moment when you catch it just as it turns into a memory.

What remains is gratitude to be alive in this intense world, whatever the nostalgia can be when we touch the ephemeral nature of life experiences.

This is the Galliera garden I am talking about (in Paris), located around a great museum.
