Why is it so hard to focus on the present?
In every aspect of our lives, 
we are constantly planning the next
adventure, the future experience.
Or worse, we are reliving the past,
whether it was positive or negative,
taking ourselves backward in time.
This is it. This thing I am doing right now.
Typing these words on this computer,
deciding the direction I want 
to go with these thoughts.
My cat is watching from 
the arm of the couch.
My daughter comes to tell
me she is going out for food.
The fountain of trickling water
makes for peaceful music.
The fan is cooling the air.
This is all I need to know right now.
