Sunday Still Life is an evolving mindfulness project; a weekly invitation to pause the busy of our days, to re-center and celebrate the beauty and depth of life. If you are leave inspired to join in, please leave a link in Erin’s comments.
This is by far the happiest moment that occurs in my days. And indeed, it is just that. A brief and spontaneous moment of the Sistred coming together and breathing each other in before the rascaling and subsequent crying of one of them starts. It happens at random moments. Usually first thing in the morning when the baby wakes, sometimes when we are out at a park, anytime the baby has been lifted from a seat, from my lap or from the arms of her teacher at the end of the work day. I can’t predict when it will happen but I do always stop and witness it, however brief.
