September 13 - HAPPY GRANDPARENTS DAY to all of you from me and my sugarplum, JACKSON

Introduced: September 14 2015

Remember in the early 1970s when Ram Dass told us to "Be Here Now"? Many cultures, religions, philosophies and forms of spirituality have their own principles of living in the moment, being open to experience. With a baby in mind, as I have been while writing the book Good to Be Grand, I know we can all remember how it is to watch, wonder and learn again.

 

I don't know about you, but waiting at the other end of a tube and watching my little guy crawl toward me, all smiles, at a party celebrating his First Birthday did it for me. I was all THERE THEN!

 

Two more thoughts for the day:

 

"Attention is the purest form of generosity." (Simone Weil)

 

"We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us. (Marcel Proust)
