  2. 2. A Moment in Time• Look around you. What do you see? You see people walking by. You see some chattering away. You see them ‘doing’ something. If you could pause what you’re seeing and take a moment to capture that scene- what do you really see? Focus on one single aspect of that action and describe what it means to you- or to the person you are observing?
