A precious moment is a sandwich of a fleeting present, wrapped between chunks of anticipation and nostalgia. Think about it; the amount of time you spend on planning a trip and raving about it is barely comparable to the actual trip. One of my most anticipated trips was exactly a year ago when I joined the list of millions to have visited the Taj Mahal. The grandeur and symmetry of this monument that celebrates death in the liveliest fashion did not disappoint. This picture invokes mixed feelings: nostalgia of this visit and anticipation of a future trip.
