It

Sometimes there are moments that are so perfect, so right, that you can't help saying to yourself, "This is it. This is what it is all about." These moments often only last for, well, a moment, and they require letting go of the future and the past. It is about the way things are now.

I had myself an it moment the other day. On a beautiful beach on Ko Lanta, watching the sun go down, with my arms around a pretty girl. I was lucky enough at the time to realize that it-ness of the moment, because it was quickly gone. But for that moment, things were right.

Wren, Thanks so much for helping me to remember how to stop and cherish the present moment. Once again, I am the student and my children are the teachers. This was a beautiful reminder. Ahh, parenting is such a humbling experience!
