Dec 1, 2010
The first day of the last month of the last year of the first decade in the new millennium.
Until I wrote it out - just like that - I hadn't fully felt its weight and its significance.
I'm asking myself. I'm wondering. Where has the time gone? How has this year slipped thru my fingers and passed me by? And - with only one month left in this last month of this last year of this first decade in this new millennium - what is it that I can do to stretch it out..to capture..to preserve it?
Practice being in the here and now.
Practice giving my full attention to each moment..without distraction. The distractions will surely be here tomorrow. This singular moment - will not.
And so - as I begin this month of holiday revelry and fun..as as the busy-ness and excitement fo the season escalates and whirls and swirls around me - I'm reminding myself to do only one thing at a time.
To focus on this..and not that.
To practice presence.
Won't you join me in that?
