I must remember this…
In the midst of making lists of the most assorted kind (copper tinned wire, forks, cordless hair straightener, pesos, the paddle from dad’s monitor windvane, etc etc etc) I get lost in arm-chair dreams of where we might go next year, worried about how I’ll find work next summer, caught in other people’s amazing adventures and blogs, and so patently not in the moment.
So hard to remember to live in the moment, to enjoy this, today, now, remember that “life’s what happens while you’re making other plans” (thanks John Lennon and dad for never letting me forget it), and try to stop counting down days (57) until I’m back with Jon and with Brio and really living the life.
Leah: This is life too. Remember that it’s all happening perfectly, and stop thinking about tomorrow or year five of the Eight Year Plan.
