we are very good at preparing to live, but we are not very good at living.  we know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. but we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.

  1. I love community and how I fell upon you (but not really it was all part of the plan) via Vanessa who is from Vermont and whom I hang out with in the tree house. I’m for sure going to follow your blog and perhaps next ecourse I can join. I can save up for it.

  2. Life goes by extremely fast, I live your quote daily.

    I hope you long weekend has been filled with joy and the rest of you week is gentle and filled with love, beauty and happiness.

  3. I feel blessed to have discovered your blog today (through Mortal Muses). Your photographs and thoughts are beautiful and inspirational. That you believe in and share “the healing power of images and words” is also beautiful and inspiring. Kind regards,

  4. A beautifully simple and evocative shot Michelle.

    I look forward to our Moments beginning.

    Have a lovely weekend.
