Simply a Moment - April 14
I am standing in the dark. It is not just dark, but completely pitch black. I cannot see my hand in front of my face. The walls around me are rocky and damp, the floor beneath my feet uneven and slippery. Laughter suddenly drifts up the tunnel towards me. Ben and Penny have gone to explore to the end of the tunnel and find the cave. More laughter and then a flash bounces off the walls. They are taking selfies as I asked them too - well I have scrapbooking in mind! Hugh has gone back towards the entrance, his claustrophobia getting the better of him. I hear Ben and Penny chatting. My heart swells with happiness to hear them getting on so well together. I think to myself that I must remember this moment and that makes me think of Simply a Moment and I know what I will record once I get back to the cottage. Their voices are coming closer now and their torch light is bouncing off the rocky walls as they approach. 'We took selfies for you!' Penny calls as she gets nearer 'and I took a photo of Ben in a hole!' It is wonderful to see them enjoying themselves and letting go of inhibitions even though they are young adults now. Suddenly they are with me again and there is light around me, we head off together to find Hugh.
This month I am joining in with Alexa at Trimming the Sails to record a moment in my life. Mine was recorded at Careg Cennen Castle in South Wales whilst we were on holiday last week.
