slow down and enjoy the moment

you hear the word "mindfulness" being tossed around a lot these days

i'm just as guilty as the next person - 
 looking at what's coming next and not enjoying what's here right now

i am savoring summer in the studio right now- the sights, smells, sounds....the cicadas started singing last week...and we've had some intense weather with spectacular lightning...and yes it's been hot and humid but it's supposed to be because well- summer- in Iowa - and i'm a thousand miles away from the nearest ocean but it doesn't matter 

living in the moment is being aware of the moment we are in
being present in the here and now

i'm enjoying every minute of summer i can before Labor Day 

i hope when people walk past the windows at the studio they pause for a minute and remember to enjoy summer
