One Second

Time is concrete and predictable, yet elusive.  Some argue time is an illusion altogether.  Is the present moment all we have?  Or, due to the delay of our brain processing what just happened, is all we have past and present?  I find the topic fascinating.

I listened to a podcast the other day entitled, Shifting Time.  Five different Ted Talks about time were highlighted.  I resonated most with the first one wherein the speaker, Cesar Kuriyama, discussed his disappointment in recollecting memories as he aged.  He did something about it.  He captures his life in one second intervals via video. 

I really enjoyed this interview.  I immediately thought about what one second I would want to remember from my day.  I had an image of how my daughter looked upon greeting me in the morning that stuck with me.  I picked that one second from the entire day.  While I didn't capture it with video, and I will likely forget the moment entirely, it was fun to consider what one second I'd choose.

What one second would you choose to remember from yesterday, today, or everyday?  It's an interesting thought, isn't it?

Be open to what comes.
