As I sat outside this morning, I saw the snowflakes multiply from a few, to many. I am aware that my culture is inviting me to project my experience forward into the future, where the possible loss of electricity will create challenges, and where the predicted Snow will interrupt the expected flow of my day. As this happens, I feel my stomach tighten, and my breathing become shallow. I have to work to return to this time, and these Snowflakes, and the circumstances that surround me right here, right now.
Today, I will be working to be in the challenges that face me in the moments I am in, and resisting the invitation to expend energy on challenges that have yet to arise.
