“…a collection of short stories defining the impact the power of a single moment has on everyday living. Enlightening, encouraging, exposing and engaging, the simple moments captured provide clarity, comfort, and new perspectives. They become the extraordinary. We become extraordinary. Pause. Breathe. Savor. Respond.”
