right here, right now

If there's one thing I know, it's that there's a lot I don't know. A lot I have yet to learn, and some things I never will. But just lately it feels like a huge chunk of the universal syllabus has landed in my lap, daring me to read it. Go on, it's saying, take a peek. Read page 124, it's a masterpiece. I'm not far in yet, it's early days, but something is changing. I will never regain the stillness, the all-consuming focus of a five-year-old colouring in a mandala but sometimes just being in the same room as her is an education in itself. Live in the now, says the universe. Happiness 101. Leave your notebook at home.
