The tail's end.
Most of our moments are like this. Artists/writers see these moments and are able to contemplate their uniqueness, their lines, the feelings they evoke. Artists can separate a moment, a feeling and shower their attention to it.
Sometimes, freezing a moment and framing it, helps us appreciate the fluidity of our lives, the impermanence of it all.
We have stopped life by art.
Art becomes a beautiful feeling captured.
And art makes life worth living.
THIS THEME and more are explored in The Elegance of the Hedgehog, by Muriel Barberry.

(p.s. blogger spelling tool questions odd things I do, such as the spelling of uncontexted. What would you do?)
