{this moment} - Rink Duty

I'm linking to Soulemama for a Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savour and remember.




 ~Happy Friday Friends~

Beautiful scene. I remember skating on a pond while growing up in North Dakota. Great memories for me.

Although I'm not really a "snow/cold person" at heart... it would be so COOL to have your very own ice rink! If we'd had this during my son's hockey playing years, we would have gone through a lot more skates and/or skate sharpenings though.

Enjoy your weekend,
Chris

When I was home, J and I ventured to my old skating rink. It was gone! Filled in..
And I thought of all the kids missing out :(

So I gave them your address.

This pictures makes me thing of the word serenity. After what you've been through, you need it.

I hope you are doing well.

I'm new to your blog, but I'm already struck by your carefully studied eye and your ability to share not only the optics of a scene, but the tone, the feeling, too.

I'm not that far from where you are, so moments like this resonate very deeply in my soul. This is absolutely pitch perfect, and may we all have many more moments like this to savour in the months and years to come.
