Smelling the Roses

I am listening to an Alton Brown Podcast with Jet Tila, and Jet just asked him if he stops to smell the roses.

The idea was “being in the moment”, and it made me stop and think about my current life. In a way, my time here with the girls is a blessing, as I get to be with them and meditate while I have them out. I look up at the sky and take in the clouds and the different patterns, I go down to the bay and take in the coastline.

Maybe it’s my cancers that have made me cognizant of it, but I do try to be in the moment every day.
