You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw your face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I can't stop staring at you..

While I heard the very famous James Blunt song, sang my own set of lyrics, clicked this picture, thought about how lucky I was to get a chance to live is this beautiful state - Sikkim, how much i was in love with nature and how much power and strength it gave me to keep going; and smiled, the entire moment transitioned into a black and white memory.

They say a moment once lost, is lost forever and that is why we must make the most out of each.

I was washing clothes a little later, I caught nature at its zenith from the little drying room window.

It left me speechless.

My friend says that the beauty of nature reflects the creator and I cannot bet a bit against it.

The water coloured blue sky was studded with clouds and the sun's sharp rays fought through them to create silver linings and shower blessings. 

I stared into the sun, amazed, while it was high above the mountains, gracing the valley, fields and the Teesta.

I felt sanctified.

I ran back to my desk, grabbed my phone, got back and clicked a picture. Of course I couldn't capture every bit of the moment for the camera can never replace the human eye.

The other lyrics of Your'e Beautiful played in my head, then.

Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
Flying high,
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.

And there! It was a moment not lost, but made the most of.

I feel ordained.

Just like that. When life gives you a moment, you don't sit, wait, wonder what you should do and lose the chance. It'll even give you hope, show you the path and grace you. You just grab it do what you've gotta do and make the most of it.

I agree..sometimes we let moments just pass away..the best way to make a moment memorable is by reliving it...through words, photographs, through a midnight conversation...or anything fr tht matter of fact..Embrace these moments cos comes down to those key moments...when u actually were YOU!!!
