Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moments | Onward!

“When one door of happiness closes, another opens.
But often we look so long at the closed door
that we do not see the one which has opened for us.”

~ Helen Keller

This is a contribution to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting. It is a redo of a previous one titled Fleeting Moments. My cats are the hardest creatures to photograph. Just when you think you have the perfect shot they move. So here is an opportunity to showcase this one’s fleeting movements one fleeting moment. 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting Moments | Slowing to Really See

“I, who cannot see, find hundreds of things to interest me through mere touch.
I feel the delicate symmetry of a leaf.
I pass my hands lovingly about the smooth skin of a silver birch, or the rough shaggy bark of a pine….
I feel the delightful, velvety texture of a flower, and discover its remarkable convolutions; and something of the miracle… is revealed to me.
Occasionally, if I am very fortunate, I place my hand gently on a small tree and feel the happy quiver of a bird in full song….
At times my heart cries out with longing to see these things. If I can get so much pleasure from mere touch, how much more beauty must be revealed by sight.
Yet, those who have eyes apparently see little. The panorama of color and action which fills the world is taken for granted….

It is a great pity that, in the world of light, the gift of sight is used only as a mere convenience rather than as a means of adding fullness to life.”

~Helen Keller
