Perfect Moment Monday

We are all at a concert. An alternative rock band that my husband and I shared when we were in college and when we moved out on our own...a band that started to make children's music about the time we had our first child. Now we are all here for a benefit family concert...

And time whirls around me. They play new songs and old songs from both their children-oriented albums and from adult albums too. At certain points confetti is sprayed out into the audience and we are covered in colorful pieces of paper...only fitting as I hear and can see the multiple facets of my life before me.

The children enjoy the music...my son remembering songs from when he was little, enjoys the new songs. Quietly sitting and listening. My daughter jumps about and throws left over confetti while she dances to the music. I dance with her at times and at other times I just watch and listen as my life unfolds before my eyes.


More Perfect Moments Here.

That sounds like such a fun day. Funny how you thought the music reflected two parts of you... but your past and present just collided. It's all you.
You drew a perfect picture of your perfect moment.
