While working on a project that involved cotton candy the other day I tore off a tiny fluffy piece and popped it into my mouth. The sweetness took over my senses. My salivary glands kicked in and I was wrapped in the euphoria that comes along with that moment of sugary delight.
And then it was gone.
In an instant.
It made me stop dead in my tracks and think about all of the sweet moments in my life that melt away without me consciously paying attention to them.
They just melt away and get swallowed up by life.
And then they’re gone.
Life is short.
Life is sweet.
