(From top to bottom, left to right)

Aziza , in Kuwait, prepares for her sister's birthday with some yummy looking mini cakes.

Kristin, in Maine, enjoys a rare moment of an absolutely quiet house while son and daughter (seen here) nap after a rambunctious day in their first spring sun. The sigh of relief from Kristin is almost audible. "Ahhhhhh"

Rachel, in Seattle, finds herself alone, in one of her favorite places (public library), with time enough to ponder the names and dates on very old check out cards. What a rare thing for a mama.

RC, in Los Angeles, is cryptic about her moment, and as a consequence must be quoted "something old, something new... dried roses from my hubs shrubs, petals plucked from pleasant surprises, and valentine's dozens dried... gathered to make something new *)"

Cory, in Connecticut, and fiancée splurge on Starkbucks while on a marathon errands outing.

Week 21 ~ Keep on keeping on.

There were quite a few folks who missed the moment this week, just as I did last week, and I wanted to say to them, from the bottom of my heart, “Thank you! Thank you for doing what you do.  Thank you for teaching, for counseling, for mothering others. Thank you for doing these things instead of stopping to take a photograph for this beloved, yet far less worthy project. The world would likely continue to spin without you, but I can’t imagine it would be worth the trip.”

This week’s moment caught us all at a nourishing break in our day. 

 fueling up and carrying on


Cory, in Connecticut, prepares for a spicy lunch with her fiancé. Left-over Szechuan tofu. Yum. Wait, was it the food that was spicy I wonder?

Rachel, in Seattle, breaks for lunch after a hideous day of searching for her wallet after missing a flight for it's absence. (Side note: A week later, it's still missing. We've mourned and moved on. Damn, I loved that wallet!!)

Aziza, in Kuwait, takes a moment with a cup of tea and herself, before her children arrive home from school. Unhappy with the level of education they get at school, Aziza takes it upon herself to make sure her children are learning all they can and need to when they are with her. As any home-schooling-mom could likely tell us, it's a big job. Bravo Aziza!!

Week 20

All of these images were taken by different photographers across the globe at the same moment,  Friday, April 8, 2009 at 4:48 p.m. Week 20 mosaic copy

Familiar Rhythms 

Cory, in Connecticut, returns to the sea, to tidepools, where sun, new seaweed growth and displaced subtidal species brought by recent storms, greet her, as if they were old friends.

RC, in Los Angeles, was setting up some shots for her ritual bookmark making. A gift for herself.

Aziza, in Kuwait, catches a playful moment with her children, taking advantage of their annual spring break, in a mall.

Kristin, in Maine, noticed, for the first time, the beautiful light dancing around a vintage glass, a piece of loveliness in her possession for years.

Week 19 ~ Beloved


All of these images were taken by different photographers across the globe at the same moment, Friday, April 3, 2009 at 10:22 a.m. week 19 mosaic copy

Beloved Moments

Rachel, in Seattle, sleeps an illness away, wakes at the "moment alarm" and snaps away at her nightstand. Then, back to sweet slumber. (Book = Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by beloved author, Barbara Kingsolver)

RC, in Los Angeles, is surprised by a belated birthday gift of books published in 1923 (pocket Short Stores by De Maupassant & The Sidewalks of New York - booklet put out by the hotels of the time) from a friend. A beloved passion supported by a beloved somebody.

Kristin, in Maine, communes with a beloved photographic subject conjuring thoughts of balance, meditation, smoothness, & stone.

Cory, in Connecticut, prepares a gift, for her beloved mother-in-law, of photos for a digital frame. Ever the collaborator, Cory orchestrates the effort of herself and three brothers for the benefit on one loved mother.

Aziza, in Kuwait, collects beloved moments of photographic genius into a portfolio. Great things are sure to come of this development.
