Oooooohhhhh... But it feels so gooooooood... I overdid it yesterday (boy, did I overdo it), but it feels strangely satisfying this morning.

I've been told in no uncertain terms that I need to stop living in everyone else's future, and start living in my own present. I believe I've discovered a surefire way of doing so. Nothing ties you to the present like sore and tired muscles.

That said, it's very hard to live in the present when there's three centimetres of snow on the ground, and it's the middle of May. I do love Calgary, but this is a little much.

I received mail yesterday. Northland Pontiac wants me to take my car in for service. What fun!

If anyone has any suggestions on how I can practice living in my own present, please feel free to try out this fun new comment feature Blogger has introduced.

I know, its my answer for everything, but fencing is good for living in the present. There is nothing but you, the opponent, the president, and two blades. Any thoughts of the future are limited to actions to be preformed within the next few seconds. Sure, its a seperate space from the rest of your life, but if your mind is anywhere but the here and now, you'll get lit up!

Hi, greetings from Mom. Someone at work today mentioned that the only time in her life that she was totally focussed on the here and now with no outside interference at all was when she was rock climbing. Not that you need a new hobby or anything...
