#Reverb10 | Prompt 3 | Moment

December 3 | Moment.

Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors).   (Author: Ali Edwards)
I'm happy to say I've had plenty of moments of feeling truly ALIVE this year. Purposefully trying to engage and live in the moment will do that for you. Being aware of all the things you have to be grateful for will do that for you. But when I read this prompt, one moment immediately flashed through my mind.

June 4, 2010. Driving home from the gym. The sun is shining, bright and happy in the sky. It's a warm day and I'm flushed from a great workout, but enjoying the breeze tickling the back of my neck and ruffling my hair as it blows through my car windows. And on the radio comes Shania Twain's "Man, I Feel Like A Woman." I crank the music and sing-along (admittedly off-key, but hey, I'm alone with no one to offend) belting out the refrain at the top of my lungs. And I feel alive, happy, content, for a few perfect moments.
