In The Moment

This piece is available at Samantha's Cafe in Glens Falls NY.

This morning I am inspired to live in the moment.  The song Lasan by Michael Kiwanuka is running through my mind. The message is about living every day like you're running out of time and saying the things you need to say and not leaving anything behind. As people we tend to worry about our past and worry about our future and we just don't realize that we have choices to make in the moment.  Are we going to appeal to our better angels or are we going to live with our demons?  Every person has a demon somewhere inside them and every person has an angel somewhere inside of them.  That is the choice of living in the moment, are you an angel or are you a demon?

I had a soul enhancing day yesterday.  My friend Cheryl and her husband are singers in an oratory group and they were putting on a performance of Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn.  I didn't think I would like it but I went to support my friends.  Let me just say I am so joyful and glad that I went. It turned out to be exactly what I needed in this moment of my life.

I spent the first half of the concert looking for my friends, trying to keep up with the words in the program and generally fidgeting in my seat.  I thought the singers and the orchestra were excellent but I didn't really feel the joy of the performance.  During the intermission I found my friends and their beautiful daughter and her husband.  I sat with Debra and Michael during the second half and felt comfortable enough to just listen and enjoy the beautiful and inspirational performance..  At times I watched each instrument and how it was being played and heard the voices of angels in the chorus.  The lead singers were extraordinary and it was beautiful.  I closed my eyes and just let the performance take me where it wanted to go and I listened to the message of the piece.  Redemption and hope.  For the first prolonged moments of the last couple of months I was filled with hope for the future. 

I then went out with my friends to dinner and just enjoyed those moments and flavors too.  My friends do this really cool thing, they pick a little of this and a little of that and then they try everything.   They do this at home too, it's always fun to eat with them it reminds me of my childhood dinners at my grandmother's house.  It was pure joy eating with their family and they made me feel like I was a part of their family. It was truly a wonderful day.  In each moment yesterday I chose whether I was going to enjoy the experiences of music and friends or if I was going to find something to distract me.  On the whole I would say it was a moment of making good choices and enjoying the wonderful of the day.

This morning I'm here writing about living in the moment.   After I write this post I am going to sit and embroider with my headphones on and I will be joyful.  That is my choice.  Make good choices, experiment with different genres of music, try a little food your might not ordinarily eat.  Just be in the moment and find joy.  Blessings.
