Wise words from a surprising source:     Don't know how I happened to see it on the internet, but Cindy Crawford was giving some advice about living.   She said, "Don't wish away the present."    How easy to be thinking ahead and anticipating some future event or happening and not really living the present moment.   She also said, "You can't multi-task presence."   Reminded me of seeing people punching away on their iphones etc. right in the presence of others.   It also reminded me of a booklet Nelson gave me years ago titled:   THREE - LINED OBSERVATIONS by Robert D. Andrews, a friend of his.   The observation is:

                            "This is the moment
                                I am with you.
                              I have no other."

Words full of insight. That is sight within. When we give of ourselves, including our time, it is the most precious gift. Life is about living now, not worrying about the past or fretting about the future. Enjoy the precious moment of now and share the love!
