Practice disappearing

Know you could tumble any second.
Then decide what to do with your time.

Naomi Shihab Nye

We give away most of our time to others. We don't even think about it. Let's all enjoy some solitude. At least, once in a while.

Your life has already begun

For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin -- real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way, something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
