It's a moment where it feels as if time stops for just a second, as if the mind is at a complete standstill, and there is no sense of this 'I' that so often is in our way. It's peaceful and you become one with the surroundings. It's a moment that transforms you but only in a very subtle way. Forcing it is useless; it happens when you least expect it and, to me, that is the beauty of it. It's impossible to hold on to it because as soon as that thought enters your mind the moment is gone.
I'm not trying to sound like Buddha on the Mountain here; I think every human being experiences moments like those. The wonderful thing about this particular one is that I had my camera in my hands and I was in my own garden. I was admiring the arrival of spring.
It almost feels as if I managed to capture the moment on film.
He must have experienced one of those moments.
