We make more or less of ourselves. Nobody else gets credit, nobody else gets blame or shame for who we are or what we’ve done. We are the best of humanity. We are the worst. We are every thought we’ve ever had – they’ve made us this yin and yang mixture of wholeness without which we cannot live a whole life.
We are not mass, or air. We are time. We come and go, we do not last. We are time. We are neither hot nor cold, dry or wet – we are just time. We are always running out. My time is my enemy, my time is my friend – always one, or the other, never both together.
My life is what I make it.
Your life is what you make yours.
All works well until: TIME’S UP.

morning walk: -3C/26F, overcast – low ceiling (the forecast says ‘snow grains’, a term I don’t understand, but I don’t think I saw any), Gusta romping and me walking/dragging a little – sleep deprivation will cause that sometimes …
Mark, another excellent read. I’ll challenge you on the “think future” proposal. The future doesn’t exist without “living in the NOW.” Sure, Im a "news junkie and like to read artist biographies", however, in my 55 (mostly adult) years, Ive read many wonderful enlightening books including Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment (ah, the focus thing). I’ve also read a lot of Deepak Chopra’s books as well. Please consider making these creations forward-able on Social Media (not just email). I would love to teach my “friends.”, PVG, Calgary, AB
