One Tiny Moment in Time


In one tiny moment in time, one instant of my life, all the love, compassion, and connection I feel to all of life burst forth to create one choice, one action that culminated in saving one rare yellow lobster and my own life.

I truly believe that what I feel within is what I will see without. If I am fearful and angry, the whole word becomes a fearful, angry place. But if I feel love within, I see a world of beauty and light. 1549789-thumbnailThis all sounds philosophical I know and yes, I’ve been a seeker my whole life. The uniquely human questions of “Why am I here?” and “How did it all come about?” have always intrigued me. I am a deep thinker but growing older has taught me simplicity. I am content learning about the physical world and my deepest connection to it is the feeling of love.

Not to belabor the idea of love and connection to the earth, I simply wish to impart my sense of awe at how that one tiny moment in time, that one lightning fast decision to snap a picture of the beautiful rare lobster to find her a home, was absolutely profound in its effect on my life.

Every thought, every choice I make in every instant creates my life. I choose love.

May you, my readers, have much joy these holidays.

Have there been moments that have changed your life? I’d love to hear about it.

  1. I had a life changing event, that nearly ended badly, but I was saved to live and write another day, one leg lighter, but humbled by an awakening and a sense of oneness with everything. This feeling of being connected, not just to people but to everything that is alive, is apparently not unique, as I am finding out. I wanted to express my happiness of meeting you and your friends so far away from me. This is the first verse of a poem I’ve been working on for a while.

    A kindred spirit, so they say,
    T’is a soul you’ve never met.
    Until you meet with them someday,
    They don’t exist as yet.

    Meeting you folks online seems to lend some truth to the words I’ve written so long ago, not really knowing who or when I would meet my many Kindred Spirits.

  2. Beautifully said Lockie. You are so right. It’s interesting how out of so many hundreds of millions of people there are on social media, we kindred spirits are drawn together like an electomagnetic force is at work in the human realm. I’m glad we were brought together.
