That Perfect Moment

Perfect moments are few and far between in our lives and when they do, you savour it and you replay it in your memory forever and ever.

Picture this.  It’s late evening and you’re sitting on your patio or balcony.  A steaming cup of Capuccino alongside a piece of cheesecake is waiting to be consumed.  The air is calm with a perfect temperature of 25C.   The only sound you hear is Billy Joel’s voice singing “Just The Way You Are”.   You close your eyes and take in a deep breath and you let it out slowly.  You open your eyes and this is what you see.

This was that moment with that coffee and cheesecake on the patio of the Pacific Coffee House and music provided from a nearby bar.

Twin Towers

New York City

May, 2000

The Twin Towers standing tall and proud.  Little did we know back then that in just over a year later they would be attacked.  The destruction that it caused, not only physically to those buildings, but mentally and emotionally to the world.

We all have visual memories and emotional memories.  One emotional memory I have was being at the Port Authority. We were buying tickets to take the subway over to New Jersey.  I don’t know why, but that excitement is still vivid to me now as it was in 2000.
