Perfect Moment Monday -- Spring It On!

Each week I participate in Perfect Moment Monday, sponsored by the blog, According to Lavender Luz, "Perfect Moment Monday" is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect Moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between." And so, here is a Perfect Moment for this week.

Over the past week, I've been noticing spring ALL over the place. Last weekend, I went running with one of my best friends, Loralie, on a beautiful trail. The weather was cool and as we finished our last quarter mile, it began to sprinkle, and later rain.

On the trail we saw an owl sitting in her nest, looking down on the trail at us. What a spectacular sight!

From the picture it's hard to see (since I took it with my phone), but look for the dark cluster (the nest), and you can barely make out the two pointed ears.

I've written about the meaning of owls in a previous post. You can check it out here. Or check out some information on owls on the Web site of the Colorado Division of Wildlife.

Seeing an owl while I was out running with my BFF was a Perfect Moment!

I'm SO happy it's spring!

I smiled at the "phone camera" grief. It takes intention to be in the moment and not run get the "good" camera so you can take the 'right" picture. I fight it all the time.
Happy spring and many more of its perfect moments for you this week.

I have often had those moments when I have forced myself to not "capture" the moment, but to live it.

Happy Spring!

(I too have been waiting and watching for those is so wonderous!)

I don't think I've ever seen an owl in the wild.

Sounds like a wonderful set of perfect things coming together at once -- yay!

oh spring. I love it. And as someone who stops on runs often to try to grab a gorgeous site with my phone/camera/runkeeper only to realize the image is so much less than the sight I am seeing and feeling, I can totally connect with your photo here (and know the moment had to have been perfect) thanks for sharing!
