The Power of Now is amazing. So many of us live in the past - either regretting it or glorifying it - neither of which serves us well in the present. And the future doesn't exist, so going there in our minds is futile. Pulling yourself into the now is the only way to actually be present in your own life.

It's interesting what you said about your mom taking pics. I'm the family photographer, and it just dawned on me that I'm so busy trying to preserve the memory with photos that I only half experience the event - and with one eye shut at that.

I need to open both eyes and just "be."
