In This Moment

There was a time I explored the lush forests of New Zealand. Waipoua forest, we called it.

There was a time I explored the lush forests of New Zealand. Waipoua forest, we called it. I would dance and sing through the towering trees encountering all sorts of new friends.

Friends with four legs to walk on.

Friends with four legs to walk on. Friends covered with fur, spots, and stripes.

Friends with four legs to walk on. Friends covered with fur, spots, and stripes. Even friends with more eyeballs than two! Those guys weren’t my best friends, but I would always show respect nonetheless.

Oh, how I miss those days of free-spirited strolls where the green giants seemed to sway with me through the tepid breezes of summer.

Oh, how I miss those days of free-spirited strolls where the green giants seemed to sway with me through the tepid breezes of summer. In this moment, I was playful.

There was a time I searched the arid deserts of Egypt.

There was a time I searched the arid deserts of Egypt. Wadi Al-Hitan, or Whale Valley it was also called from time to time.

For years I discovered the fossilized remains of animals great and small including some massive whales (hence the name ‘Whale Valley’).

In this land, I was a self-proclaimed bone detective, digging up everything from mandibles to skulls, ribs to phalanges, and vertebrae of all sizes and shapes.

Oh, how I miss those days of gaining knowledge finding fossils while the heat from the fireball in the sky would blister my skin, but I never cared.

Oh, how I miss those days of gaining knowledge finding fossils while the heat from the fireball in the sky would blister my skin, but I never cared. In this moment, I was learning.

There was a time I galloped horses on the rocky edges of the Irish coastline near Galway.

There was a time I galloped horses on the rocky edges of the Irish coastline near Galway. My parents always called out to me to come help them farm, but my passion lived with the horses.

These beautiful beasts full of muscle with the potential to harm, yet remain sweet-tempered, unlike us humans.

These beautiful beasts full of muscle with the potential to harm, yet remain sweet-tempered, unlike us humans. We could learn a lot from these creatures.

I loved being with them. They taught me patience and kindness.

I loved being with them. They taught me patience and kindness. They gave me motivation to work through the monotonous chore of farming I was expected to carry on.

Oh, how I miss those days of momentary freedom from real life riding to the edges of the coast of this shamrock green land I called home.

Oh, how I miss those days of momentary freedom from real life riding to the edges of the coast of this shamrock green land I called home. In this moment, I was thriving.

Although my time here is limited as it is with every time traveler living in this world,

Although my time here is limited as it is with every time traveler living in this world, we must relish in these moments of tranquility before the sand lets up and our timeline changes course.

I never worry myself because I know I’ll be back, but I always make sure to find my peace in every life I am given.

I never worry myself because I know I’ll be back, but I always make sure to find my peace in every life I am given. Where will I go next?
