    I Choose To

    I cannot look back and dwell on all of it because every time I do it sets me back. I can't think about tomorrow because if it doesn't get here then I wasted today's time on something that was never guaranteed to begin with. To do either seems like the ultimate waste of time to me...

    The Chance Of Humming

    There Is Only Now.

    What does it mean to live in the present moment? The present moment is all there is. Forget, right now, about the ideas you have of past, present, and future. None of that exists. There is only NOW. The past only exists as a memory that is occuring right NOW. The future only...

    The Magic Lantern

    A good friend of mine asked me today: "What would you wish for if you had a lantern with a genie?" The question gave me pause because I am not much of a wishful thinker. Hadn't really thought about that since I was a kid. My first instinct is that I have to think it carefully. It...
