I am still in New Mexico, but I was thinking about this question and thought I would share it with you and check in.
I know that the literal answer is the present – we can only really live in the present until time travel is perfected.
But what about our minds – our thoughts? Are you stuck in the past? Always jumping ahead to the future? Or are you a "be here now" kinda gal/guy?
I think I suffer from futuritis – thinking too much about the future. I have a hard time being here now. Even here in New Mexico, I am constantly mentally jumping out of the frame and into something I don’t need to be thinking about right now. I’m planning, planning, planning in my head. Once I have a plan, I plan again.
It is a sickness, I am sure. Does anyone have a quick cure?
What about you? Past, present or future?
I met a local Gila artist who seems very present oriented. He does his art. Is pleased when you buy something but is not eager. Leaves his studio open when he is not there and invites people in anytime. He works in the moment. Or that’s the way it seemed to me.
