Don't move them there!
Images, feelings, people that were your present, so close, so real.
Don't move them into memory.
Don't want them to become fragments, short stories to tell with a smile.
I met lots of people, made our stories in the last six months.
But somehow, knowing that tomorrow, or in next two days maximum, more adventures are coming, kept these experiences in the present, close, reachable.
That's the magic of travel, the sweet addiction that is lost in the routine of home.
The absolute guaranty that if nothing exciting happened today, or if today just didn't come out, that 'tomorrow is another day' Is that, and tomorrow New is coming.
Knowing about the sure coming of the New puts me 'in the moment.'
If today sucks, why get very upset. There is tomorrow.
No need to waste many emotions on a sucky today.
And traveling, makes feeling the New so easy.
Can't do that at home.
What. A New assignment at work...? C'mon.
It feels so alive to feel the New.
Certainly there is a way to bring that back to my home life, at least in a bottled version, like the tool of a deep breath they offer at yoga classes that also makes you feel good, that lets you cut getting sucked in by the emotions of a sucky day.
Maybe I'll make a fridge magnet: "Today, what's New?"
The scoop of sarcasm, maybe it's unnecessary. Maybe it's possible. Oh, I hope so. I guess time to experiment with it is Now.
I Am back.
