One Minute Meditation – Cambridge Snow

By Andrew Furst @a_furst
 

Night Time On Memorial Drive

One  Minute Meditations is an ongoing series of short videos, poems, and commentary intended as a meditation.  Offered as an opportunity to step back from your cyber routine and settle into a more natural rhythm, if only for a minute. 

Cambridge Snow

This week’s one minute meditation, Cambridge Snow, was filmed while I was at work at Foundation Medicine in Cambridge Massachusetts.  It was a beautiful February snowy day, enough to draw my attention from an otherwise frenetic day.

The falling of snow is grounding, a visual cue to settle.  It’s a soft settling that occurs at a gentler pace than the typical daily beat.  Pausing for the few minutes to set up my tripod and film the 60 second shot was another opportunity to breath in the midst of the go, go, go.  Treasures never cease to appear.
