Glancing up or back or out of a window just in time to see something that makes you forget what you're doing for a few moments and just sigh.
Passing our French doors yesterday morning, something on the edge of my vision caught my eye. I turned just as a Great Blue Heron glided past our house, following the line of the creek up the Hollow. I watched him until he disappeared beyond the trees.
He's not an uncommon sight around here, but seeing this huge bird flying silently never fails to amaze me and fill me with a sense of awe and wonder. He comes and goes suddenly and is gone just as fast, and I've given up trying to capture the moment in my camera - I'd rather just stand still and watch.
Have you experienced anything like this? What moments fill you with silent wonder?
