The Surreal Experience

"Pink Cala Lily" (Little Moment #30)
watercolor (6"x 6")
Painting on Arches paper mounted on archival museum board,
UV and archival varnish coated. Display easel included.

Have you ever had a surreal experience, a once in a lifetime experience...that only few people in the world will ever get to beyond comprehension...that it truly goes beyond what you can wrap your brain around.  I like to think that it is these moments in life when you get to assess where you really are. 
How present are you?
What does this really mean in the grand scheme of things? 
Does this add value to you? 
Does this make you a better person?
Who was there to share the experience?
How will you remember this event?
If you were alone, would it have the same impact?
So its not really the fact that you saw and tried on the the 12th largest diamond in the world, with a value of $44 million dollars, it's really all about the people you met and the loved ones that shared the experience with you.
