The Only Moment There Is.

A quote from Thich Nhat Hanh for the weekend: We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive. 

I often get caught up in the idea of tomorrow, next week, next month, next year. And while it's comforting to make plans for the future and alway important to dream, I never want to lose sight of the fact that I'm here. There's beauty in working to catch the wave; it's beautiful, also, just being in the sea.

Enjoy the weekend - read, relax, watch the sky, sing!
