Being Present

Dawn 1

As I sat down at my desk to write today, I went through some of the files in my blog folder and the title of this file stood out to me, “Morning Thoughts.”  I thought it might be one of the files I use to do a mind dump in the morning, to clear out all the busy-ness of my mind and let it settle into focus for writing a blog.  When I opened the file this is what I found.

Yesterday I made a silly comment on Facebook about my morning.  It was not accompanied by a picture, or a famous quote, or anything to make it stand out.  Almost immediately, there were 'likes' and comments from friends.  And throughout the day, the number of friends who noticed the comment kept growing. 

Times SquareThe plane wheels touch down on a La Guardia airport runway.  It’s my first trip to New York City and I am eager and excited for all that the next few days might hold.  Yes, there will be business meetings for the most part, but it’s Manhattan!  This isn’t television or movies or a book.  I’m here to experience the shops, the landmarks, the sights and sounds for myself!

The ride from the airport to my hotel has me looking out the windows looking for a glimpse of anything I might recognize.  And yet, what captivates me is the delightful conversation with my driver.  We exchange stories about our families and we laugh at how similar our life experiences have been, even though we are miles and cultures apart.
