I’ve been waiting for this moment. Have you? It’s special, is it not? Let us linger a while in it, for it will pass in no time. We’ll certainly be mindful as it passes, like sand slipping through our hands in spite of our tight grip. Shall we receive this moment in silence, or is it better to lose ourselves in it? We’ll be looking back at it, of that we can be sure. As the days, weeks, and years roll by, we’ll wonder about that moment as it recedes deeper into the distant, misty past. The moment just passed, nevermore to return, and yet it lives within me, within us.
