In Western Australia, I stood in an olive grove. At that moment the sun was out and I could feel the warmth – even as a fresh, coolish breeze swept over me and through the olive trees. I inhaled the heavenly aroma and felt completely present. I am able to retrieve the feeling, the smell and the contentment of that exact moment.
That may not seem very remarkable. For me, those moments of precise connection are rare as I tend to have a head running on everything and everyone around me. I am actively working to achieve contentment and connection – but on that day, it simply happened.
The memory, is a gift.
