The Zen Buddhist teacher/ photographer, John Daido Loori described photography this way; "A photograph is a sixtieth of a second, one-one thousandth of a second - it's the moment and the moment is a fleeting thing. It arrives as it departs. The moment is where our lives take place and unfortunately most of us miss it."
Often preoccupied with the past, or lost into the future, we fail to realize that we are missing the moment-to-moment awakenings in our life, available in the now-ness of the present moment existence.
"Many of us have made our world
so familiar that we do not see
it anymore. An interesting question
to ask at night is:
What did I really see this day?"
- John O'Donohue
