35 . Quest for the real moment

2 0 0

Life is about capturing the magic of the very moment that gives the inspiring power to forge ahead into a world of insight and understanding.

At some point people do question the kind of life they are leading and wonder whether it is actually the life they want to live. Do they merely experience a series of 'phony' moments and a succession of fake sequences or are they actually building up an authentic life story that gives them the enrichment they have been looking forward to. 

Some don't know whether they are living their 'own' life or simply a life for 'other' people. Are they not playing a role on behalf of some social groups and masquerading for fear of being excluded??

In their quest for the 'real moment' they expect to grab hold of the singular instant ( Henri Cartier-Bresson would call it " a lightning instant") that feels like a journey between the past and the future, between the land they know and a land they don't know. In their pursuit they hope to encounter that 'genuine' moment, that frail child of the fleeting time that leaves a scar in the memory.
