A moment on my mind

For weeks now, I've had a particular moment on my mind, moment that centers me and brings me calm. I don't know why it has been my constant mental touchstone of late, but it has.

It comes from a day on our river trip in Madagascar in May 2009. We woke with the dawn, as you tend to do when sleeping in a tent, just in time to see other canoe guides, already free of their passengers, making the return trip against the current. They poled in time to their song, the music barely reaching our ears through the morning mist.

Of course an imparted memory can't be the same as a lived one, but perhaps someone will find joy in this image, too.

G'night, LJ
