Vulnerability and Magic Moments

How to capture a Magic Moment


If you want to sear a memory into your brain, here’s how. Identify what exactly you want to remember  and if possible why. Note what specifically is happening with all your senses.


Example:

Sheep and Wool Festival

Not long ago, I went with my daughter’s to the local Sheep and Wool Festival.  We tried lanolin hand cream, made wool yarn god’s eyes at a workshop and took dirty wool samples from the ground beneath an earthy shearer and a bleating sheep.  At the sheepdog herding demonstration, as the announcer tested the mic and Kip, the purebred Australian Shepherd laid patiently in the dirt waiting for the sheep to be released from the pen, I was briefly overcome with intense joy and gratitude for the awesome day.  That was my tip off!  At that moment, I more deeply took in the scene.  I saw the white wooden gate props in the arena, the craggy tree near the parked horse trailer to my right.  I heard the announcer and the annoying lady to my left, who said ‘like’ in every sentence.  I smelled the dirt, humidity and sheep.  I tasted the nothing and dust in my mouth as I felt the cool, rough cross bars of the fence I was leaning on and the weeds tickling my ankles.  All this while feeling gratitude, love and anticipation for the figure eight Kip and the sheep were about to entertain me with.

This I can remember! I have no idea what happened the previous day.

Now put it all together into a few sentences.  You don’t have to be a writer. Just cobble it together as you see fit.  Send it to me at mm@betterwithrose.com and read it back to yourself a few times this month.
