Bald Eagle

The Present!

I have been on a retreat and now I am home, though aware "wherever I go, there I am," so there is a unity and adjustment to the last week.  I am always home, and my roots sink deeply here.  The hose is running water onto the ground around the redwood tree.  We continue to have summer, warmth, both soft and hearty, blue skies and sun.

I am with these words:


Lao Tzu:


If you are depressed, you are living in the past.

If you are anxious, you are living in the future.

If you are at peace, you are living in the present.
