I've had just enough time to... ponder about a moment.
|The moment I viewed the painting "Moment"|
I stood before the large painting titled “Moment” in the empty dining hall of this unique company I visited trying to take it all in and feel what a moment meant. There was not enough time. Ironic, isn’t it? Not enough time to feel what a moment is like or what the artist was trying to convey. When a few years ago, I was given the opportunity to start and manage a company, all I had was a vague idea to mold it into “a successful and compassionate company”. In the short span of time, we would be considered “successful” by most standards and now I found a company by which I can model true success after. One that strikes a good balance between profitability and workers’ welfare. That by the way is also true compassion. There is much to learn and execute, but I’m running out of moments…
|The last leaf on the tree - a moment in time|
If you have just a moment
To preserve your world
Before it disappears forever.
Like the last quivering leaf
In the depth of autumn
Just before its fall to Earth.
What will you capture?
Your first tentative kiss
The walk down the aisle
Praying by your father’s death bed
Safety in your mother’s embrace
The day your child was born
The pressure of his little finger
|A Lifetime in a Moment - What is Yours?|
The glorious birth of a bright new day
The awesome silence of a starry night
The golden goal or the perfect save!
The view from the top of the mountain
The cool caress of Spring breeze
A slow departing Summer sun…
Each of us will preserve
A special moment
Of beauty, joy or love
But whether it is beauty or joy,
It is still love…
