Has Been, Will Be.

We all have our ideas on how we want to grow older and wiser. And, sometimes we think too much about how to reach this goal that we lose track of the present.

So much lost time on pondering thoughts about the future, that the 'now' slips past us too soon. In the blink of an eye today is yesterday. In a few minutes we are onto the third month of the year. I would not want to think of what a whole hour can bring, while endlessly searching for meaningless answers which cannot bring back lost time.

Easier to write about, than to actually practice living for today. Really, the secret must lie in finding purpose in this very minute of life. C'est la vie.
