Momentary.

Sloane, Blue Skies with a Touch of Clouds, 1941


Human beings cleave to the existing state of things. All their lives they are striving to hold the moment fast. Their art itself is nothing but the attempt to catch by all means the one particular moment, one light, the momentary beauty of one woman or one flower, and make it everlasting.

- Karen Blixen
