it is simply the practice of noticing your life.
you are having experiences every second
your job is to lean in and pay attention.
being present is about being euphoric.
do it in the line at the bank.
sitting on the bus.
hosting a dinner party.
don't let the monks fool you -
being present is not about being still.
turn your senses loose on the world.
it will slow down your life just enough so that food will taste better.
so will kissing.
you will grow giddy and forgiving
you will fall back in love with yourself.
settle a little deeper into the moment.
your life is trying to teach you.
every moment is a stockpile of insight.
poetry is your language for hearing that wisdom.
so ride the ruckus of life. delight in the wallop of color.
you never knew the city could harness the rhythms of so many birds.
