The present moment is not always present

  1. i suck at mediation too. always have. mind always wandering hither and yon. if i’m actually calm enough to give it a go, then i’m calm enough to sleep, which i proceed to do promptly. i always would have said my mind is hyperactive or i’m overly distracted or some other negative, but from now i shall cloak myself in the glorious claim that i am “thousands of glimmering moments.”

  2. I went two places via google tonight (in an amazing show of internet restraint). One was the website for the center for spirituality and healing at the U of MN, to get info on the Mindfulness Meditation class offered this fall.

    And the other was Alison McGhee’s blog, only to find the June 17 entry “The present moment is not always present.”

    My gosh, it’s beautiful.
