alive in the present moment


We know

how to sacrifice years for a diploma

and we are willing to work very hard

to get a job , a car , a house and so on .


we have difficulty


that we are ALIVE in the present moment ,

the only moment there is for us TO BE ALIVE .

Every breath we take

every step we make can be filled with


We need only to be awake

alive in the present moment .

Wish you all lots of precious moments

  2. OH FRANCIS! Pain my dear?I seem to remember that both of us, along with some other dear blogger friends, were having BACK too! It was in my hip, but is so much better now. BUT...on occasion, IT HURTS! But concentrating on the MUSE...oh do I crave that! I just now walked in from being outside watering my flowers; it is still DARK with only my garden lighting on and I SO LOVE THIS TIME TO JUST THINK and soak up the silence! THINKING OF YOU TOO DEAREST ONE and enjoy every MOMENT!!! BISES, Anita
