Reading some Stoic writings, Marcus urging me to give myself the gift of the present moment.  YES….  Not scolding self for past errors or disconnects in decision or judgement.

The peace of the room, again.  The big kids this morning, reminding me again to relax, don’t give time too much consideration and certainly don’t let it shape your mood.

At the Yulupa Starbucks, lady who had to be in her 80s, moving slowly with either a walker or one of those wheeled things, can’t remember.  She smiled, brightly, walking past me to get in line saying “Good morning” and waiting to order her tea.

I have right now.  NOW, this desk and latte and music.  The sales story which I’ll be honest I’m less stressed over and now squeezed with a thankful throw.
