Being present is about living where I’m at in my own shoes. I cannot live in the past or future. Being present is being awake. Acceptance. I’ve heard it said, “Reality is only experienced when we live life in the present.” May I live today in the present!

Graduation were the past two weeks so along with that are the long nights studying for finals. I noticed this young man at one of the local coffeehouses. Hope everyone has a great 3 day weekend!
This is a typical scene in most of the industrialized world. I find people are not aware of most things around them. I’m not sure they are aware of the Red-tailed Hawk sitting in the tree across the street. The song of the robins as they announce the rising sun. The chickadee making it’s two-tone high-low call. The squirrels chasing each other in the tree just behind them. Or the photographer taking their photograph. 🙂
Well, school is back in session and with classes starting campus has transformed, again. Traffic is a mess again with cars and only one passenger. Bicycles and skateboarders are everywhere. Most coffee shops are packed with students writing and researching. However, if you go early enough you can find a table to enjoy a latte, mocha, tea and a bit of quiet.
