  • A couple times a month I meet with a group of people who, along with me, are learning to live present tense lives.
    We are seeking to live today, right now, this moment. Not yesterday or 10 years ago, because those days are gone. Not tomorrow or next Friday or April 30, 2047, because they’re not here yet.
    Some people live yesterday over and over and over. They dwell on what happened, what didn’t happen, what could’ve been, what they think should’ve been.
    Yesterday, that’s where dashed dreams and regret and bitterness live.

  • This time of the year I am on the lookout for a variety of masterfully camouflaged stinging caterpillars.
    The very first time I saw one it turned into a game: I took Andy down to the Parrotia tree and said “can you find the caterpillar?”  He never did because this caterpillar looked exactly like the scorched edge of a leaf that would be a result of a long hot summer.
