    Each Heart Beat Has It's Own Time

    I used to say day by day, then it was breath by breath. Now I know each heart beat has it's own time. Cherish every second for what it is and don't worry about what tomorrow holds. ~ easier said than done of course ~

    In The Zone

    I live in the moment. And many times at will, I can become so focused in the present that I get "in the zone," "flow," "hyper-focus," or whatever you call it. My performance peaks, and I am focused in a narrow subject and in the now. This has happened to me recently, and I can...

    As Time Passes By

    It's hard to assume then dreams become inadequate to make it real. Hence, cherish the moment and live in it until it becomes a lasting memory which can make you smile in the future as an enduring remembrance of the hours passed and days that were gone.
