What the moment?

Every single moment contains thousands of possibilities – and I can only choose one of them to actualise it … . Everything I realise through them, or “bring into the world,” as we have said, I save into reality and thus protect from transience.*
Viktor Frankl

By being what only I can be I give humanity what only I can give. It is my uniqueness that allows me to contribute something unique to the universal heritage of humankind.**
Jonathan Sacks

As a blank piece of paper may be filled with
all manner of images, so
a moment
is full of possibilities, and
It is up to you and me to choose what we shall
bring into being, but
procrastination is our nemesis.
The best way you and me can decide upon
what this moment can be, is for you to be
fully you, and me to be
fully me;
As Dolly has wisely said:
Find out who you are and
do it on purpose.^

And, as
Oliver Wendell Holmes laments:
Alas, for those that never sing
But die with all their music in them.^^
