Writer’s Oasis: Making the Most of a Moment

“Forever is composed of nows.” ~ Emily Dickinson

It’s true, isn’t it? Our lives aren’t made up of long stretches of time that just keep expanding, but rather they are built upon fleeting moments that are over almost as soon as they begin. As a writer, I’ve learned to live for these small moments that start a flicker of inspiration catapulting through my mind. And sometimes I get them captured in a photo… so I thought I’d share some images that have sparked the creativity within me. I hope there’s something among these that will inspire you in some capacity and encourage you to keep your eyes peeled for the small moments that make the biggest impact.  Here are some spectacular moments that I (and Word Oasis!) get to keep thanks to the beauty of an iPhone camera 🙂

A leaf imprint frozen onto my windshield.
I adore floral window boxes!
As long as it can take something to grow, it can all end in a moment.
Little cactus.
Sunsets at my university are striking.
Some of the best moments can only be remembered as a blur.
Sweet buddy, Simon,  always keeping watch.
That sky again… pure brilliance.
I was taking some pictures of my sister with her camera one random November day. I happened to see Twilight prancing around the yard as she so loved to do. I captured some stunning shots of this beautiful fur baby, her essence shining through strong in each of them. The next day she tragically passed away. Never underestimate the power of a moment and the ones you get to capture and keep.
