The following story was written by Sara Wright, from Nanaimo, BC. Sara is enrolled in literacy classes at Literacy Central Vancouver Island, in Nanaimo.
A moment means a short period of time that passes. I definitely lived in a moment when I saw the soprano Sarah Brightman, on December 13, 2008 in Victoria. As the sound of a bell toll I saw this figure come out of the dark with a veil covering figure. As soon the figure came into full view my jaw dropped into a grin because I knew it was Sarah Brightman. As the music changed to “Gothica/Fleur de Mar, she was stripped down into a red dress. Then a beam of light shone upon a diva. The holler of this angel that blast through the stero made me feel that this moment of actually seeing Brightman made me feel totally star struck. I was totally in awe and enjoyed every moment of it. Although the moment lasted about two hours, I wouldn’t forget this short passing of time.
