    Once upon a time, we wrote a song called "Moments"… Sadly, it ended up resigning itself to it's defeat because of being a discombobulated array of melodies & lyrics, which meant it never saw an mp3 player. BUT, there was one significant part of the song that I'm disappointed won't be on the record, & that is the title, "Moments".

    Here's why…

    I had the rarefied opportunity to 'slow down' over the Christmas/New Years holidays… And what I found is this… In life, all we have are moments. That's it. & quite frankly, these moments a fleeting & almost intangible at best… They decide to leave as fast as they show up.

    For example, you're reading this blog right now… THIS IS A MOMENT… AND THIS IS ANOTHER ONE, AND THIS IS ANOTHER ONE… And now, they're gone… You can of course go back and reread/re-experience the moment but, it's an altogether different & new one.. You'll never get that last one back (Sometimes I find myself living in moments that were created in the past, or have yet to be created… And sometimes I let them define me).

    Sound depressing? I don't mean it to be. In fact there's some kind of excitement here. Inside every moment, every second, minute, hour, week, month, & year we have the opportunity to make the most of it.. The beauty of this moment is that it's an all together different one from the last, meaning, in a sense, we have a fresh start!

    I get so bogged down with my own inconsistencies, deficiencies, & idiosyncrasies that I need a new month or a new year to reset myself & find a new beginning.. Which is nonsense if you think about it.. After all its just a date on a Calendar, a manmade systematic timetable to keep life organized. But, every moment is real and has the potential to be that new beginning!

    Someone said, life is 90% attitude & 10% circumstances… Maybe that's how an impoverished family in Peru with barely enough money to put food on the table smiles brighter than a some multimillionaires.

    In closing, I have an idea, let's aim to make the most of every moment we've got… Let's stop obsessing other how great over peoples moments are and enjoy our own.. What do you say?
