Thank you Bonnie. I really enjoyed your story too. It gave me pause to think about times when I maybe wasn’t so present. It’s undoubtedly a choice. But I suspect not one made consciously much of the time. I’ve always found the easiest path to being present is when you’re doing something you don’t normally do. Thus, a 1400 mile motorcycle ride seems like a perfect antidote to what ails me.

Life can be easy or life can be interesting. It’s rare that it’s both at the same time.
