Moments of Truth

I walk down the hallway and peek through the classroom windows to see children being taught by their instructors. Friends are saying goodbye after a softball game and getting their children into the car. Chairs are stacked at the restaurant and a worker is closing down shop for the day. There is the sound of music coming from someplace and it is dark outside. The park is empty, but a newspaper being tossed about by the wind makes it seem as if you’re not alone. Sounds fade and for a few moments time seems to stand still.

We always hear that no fingerprints or snowflakes are the same, but no two moments are the same either. Yet, they are eerily familiar sometimes. It’s like watching a movie that spooks you so badly that you suddenly feel as if you are being watched. You’re not sure what is happening and what is going to happen, but can almost hear the building tension in the background music and know the events are leading up to something significant and important. And, just like the fingerprints and snowflakes, the moments hold unsearchable details that blend together from multiple angles and backgrounds to form something so much more intricate than could ever be fully comprehended or explained.

Every so often the movie seems to pause itself and you are left with a still shot of all that it going on. There is a chance to take a step back and soak it all in. If you get a close enough look, it might even cause you to tremble.
