, written by Jeremy. Read the commentary.

Past. Present. Future. They are each chimeric and spin as ghosts. What is the future worth? What can the past teach? What is important about the present?

Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Zen master, says that in every moment we can choose one of the three.

In the past is our regret. In the future is our hope. And only in the present is life.

It is only now that life exists. The only moments for color, joy, love, and grace are this moment.

A plan to love isn’t loving. A remembered rouge isn’t.

Getting past the love/joy bit: what is strategy or even thinking when only action creates the outcome we desire?
