A lovely piece.

I made a decision some time back to try to be more present, to savor the small moments and to reduce my outside commitments to have more time to enjoy my life now instead of waiting for retirement that for some will never come. Of course, some days are still crazy busy, but these are good strategies for milking whatever minutes are available.
