Be Present

Be mindful.
Time is relative.
Often, it is relatively fleeting.

I was riding in the car two nights ago when I noticed the moon.
A huge, low hanging moon overlooking the city.
I am fascinated by the sky and all the wonders it serves up.
I wanted nothing more than to capture that delicious moon.
Rush, rush, rush went the cars.
"Must reach destination." thought my husband.
Me? I was enamored by the moon.
My little digital and I tried and tried but could not capture the moon at such speed.
Instead, we caught the perfect example of what happens when we don't take the time to slow down.

If one is not careful, life can flash by in a blur.

Look back to the past for a moment, plan for the future at times,
but live your life in the present moment.

It's call the Present because it is a gift!

Although it is not quite what you intended it is still a great photograph. Great philosophy too, I like it!

I presently consider you a gift. Did in the past and will in the future.
