Satisfaction is not a place, an object or a person. It is not even a moment in time. It is a state of mind. Without any other dependency. This is why we find it so difficult to achieve.

~ Maria Lehtman

I took the above image during one of our photography tours in Europe. A moonlight sonata at the coast of Croatia. It was one of the most peaceful moments of my life. A warm night without a mosquito in sight. A pilot was navigating his way through the field of stars, practicing night flying with a small plane – soaring gentle loops above us.

I could imagine the pilot looking at the sea bathed in moonlight behind his illuminated controls.

For a moment I settled down leaning my head against my camera back bag. It was a moment I wished never to end. A moment of complete satisfaction and peace.

I never realized that it would take me a long while to reach that exact state again. It was good that I did not. The secret of satisfaction is letting your mind be in one place at the same time with the rest of your body. Present with every fiber of your being.

We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

~ Mother Teresa
