down to one

by Kimberly Bauer

Life is now and life is passing.

I throw out all goals and resolutions

I replace them with one

The most simple and difficult of all

Be present.

Succinct and focused! Existential! The present is really all we have, that we can be sure of in this life.

Very effective with the single line presentation. This resolution makes sense. Thank you.

life is movement. it came from there and it is now here and from here it will move on to there. time moves along with life and what ever time it is must suffice as difficult as it is to live in what is seeming to be the present time. lovely ode.
