This Moment - 6WS - SIMC - Singing


Singing makes shopping even more enjoyable


This morning at the Saturday morning fruit and vegetable market, we were greeted by some singing.

It was a beautiful day but the singing just added an extra skip to my step.  I actually stopped for a few minutes and soaked in the music. He sang so well.

So here's a picture of the entertainer who made my shopping experience a happier one.

Not a great picture but then it's about the moment not the photography!


This is the moment 
This is the time 
When the momentum and the moment
Are in rhyme
Give me this moment 
This momentous moment ...

A simple, special, extraordinary moment 
A moment I want to pause, savour and remember

  3. I can relate to your 'extra skip to my step' on listening to that wonderful song... music has that kind of effect on you. Plato had said music gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
