Right now, I’m indulging myself in a slow morning of slice reading, commenting, fishing for a slice of my own. What will strike me to write about today? Maybe pandemic hobbies. Maybe feral cat caretaking. Maybe something I haven’t discovered yet.
Right now, my lap is warm and heavy and rumbly with cat. Orange Oliver is stretched from toe to hip with his two BFFs, Smudge and Toast, snuggled on each side and spilling off my legs. They’re a Halloween Oreo of tiny chocolate cookies and extra, extra filling.
Right now, my mind races ahead of me, starting the day. What have I forgotten? What do I still need to do?
Right now, I need the reminder to practice the right now, to return to the present moment, to keep returning, to be here in this moment. Right now.
