Simple Life

Simple Life. No matter what the situation, no matter what the difficulty or delight. We can only live in the moment. This is self evident. Even if we are focused on the future or remembering the past, we are living in this moment as we do that. It is in this moment that I am... Continue Reading →

Today when I woke up I didn't get up. Today is Saturday in my world. More space today in my schedule than there is in the "work-week".
