Just a Moment
I love this little book because it’s really simple and anyone can read it. I love it’s symmetrical square shape and the lovely blues on the cover. It’s quite old now and was put together from excerpts of Garfield King’s Barbados radio programme Just A Moment. I like to imagine him sitting peacefully in the shade, watching everyday life happen around him, while making sense of it all. I know for myself the insights that can often emerge from these quiet moments – if we can allow them for ourselves – so reading this book of insights is a reminder to adopt this ‘watching life’, as a good habit.
Each page is its own little chapter, with gorgeous observations about the ups and downs we meet each day and thought provoking solutions that are possible from a spiritual perspective. This is the book I buy as a gift for my family, friends and colleagues as it’s also very reasonably priced, which is useful! It fits into a small space so it is easy to carry and easy to read, not too overpowering in its content, but deep enough to inspire.
