We’re only here for a moment


We’re only here for a moment.

The theme for #photo101 today is Moment. We’re only here for a moment, try to enjoy it while it lasts.

Here’s a tune from that a friend and I played in my mom’s funeral (which was not the one on the photo above). I guess the best way to describe the tune is classical guitars.

  1. we are only here for a moment, so very true, Cardinal…
    ima sorry about your mom (I can fully relate…)…
    it’s a lovely tune, very peaceful…

  2. I remember the tune from before and I will listen to the video when I get home. Videos are blocked at the office. A powerful moment you’ve captured.

  3. Please forgive me, It is a beautiful and poignant click, but i will not like the pic, because I can relate to the pic. Nothing in this world can make up for loosing a parent. I miss my bestie, my dad.
    You have beautifully captured the moment. May her soul live in peace. 🙂
    On the lighter side, I got to know your name – Max 😉

    • Shukrya Andy. There’s no need to like, I prefer comments!
      This photo was shot in my cousins funeral recently. I only had my pocket camera with me, so technically the quality of the shot isn’t good enough, but it’s acceptable. Sorry to hear about your dad. I miss my dad too. Sometimes I wish that he would have lived long enough to meet my son.

      • Shukiya Max. When my Pakhi was born, my dad was the first one to hold her. She is the only grandchild in my family 🙂
        About the pic, even with your pocket camera you clicked the moment so well. And here I am still trying to handle a DSLR 😉 😛

  4. What a lovely tune, and photo! So sorry to hear you had to say goodbye to your mom! It’s so true we are here only for a moment… A great post Cardinal!

  5. Yes, it does seem only to be a moment we are here when we lose those we love. What an absolutely beautiful song. I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. You are so talented. ❤

    • Thanks. The tune just appeared one morning when I woke up, after having listened to classical music while sleeping (when I was younger I sometimes used to put music on repeat and let it play continuously through the night – brainwashing myself with tones).

  6. Truly a beautiful song, picture and post. May your heart heal and your mom and cousin rest in peace. I’m sorry for your loss. I know the wounds those losses leave. 😦

  7. CG,
    Like all the others, I’m so sorry for your loss[es]. The music was quite lovely.

    In fact, I *like* your take on this — nothing can be more true. When I’m at the beach and watch the eternal rhythm of the tides … I get a little bit of perspective, both on my own life’s moment here, and the grand scheme of things.

  8. I clicked the like, because I like the title, it’s so true. Thank you for reminding us that we are only here for a moment. I’m sorry your loss… Really enjoyed the beautiful music, very classic, CG.
