Story Of A Pure Moment I Had In Sunriver Oregon

by Sunriver Homes on November 12, 2010

Sunriver Oregon real estateThe darkness of the night was just enveloping Sunriver. The scent in the air was changing from a pungent pine forest, to a faintly mossy sage. The ground around me was beginning to emanate the heat from the sun earlier that day, and the ever so slightest, cool breeze wafted around me. It wasn’t the type of breeze that chills you, it was the kind of breeze that caresses you and gently reminds you of how fortunate you are to be alive.

The pressing thoughts in my mind began dissipating and I became very aware of the present. I was living in that moment. I was no longer thinking about what else I needed to get done that evening or the next day, I was simply there, aware of the peacefulness surrounding me.

I thought to myself how fortunate I was for that moment of clarity as nature spun its magic all around me. And then I heard it…the mournfully beautiful cry of a nearby Loon whose bird call echoed past me in full stereophonic glory. I was standing not 100 yards from the lake near Alberello and I was simply mesmerized by its haunting call.

I stood there for several more minutes as I listened more closely to the faint sounds of nature. The rustling of Aspen tree leaves, I could hear a distant cricket and I heard the faint cries of larks calling to each other in the night air.

I wanted to share this experience with you because it reminded me of just how often we get so busy with our lives that we forget the present moment in which we are actually living. We cannot change the past and we have very little control over the future, yet mentally we tend to spend so much of our living moments in those realms.

That night in Sunriver I took a few precious minutes to enjoy the now I was living. I suppose that is one of the reasons so many people choose to spend parts of their lives in Sunriver, but that night Sunriver gave me a ‘pure moment’ that I will remember for a very long time.

What experiences have you enjoyed in Sunriver?
