We invent nothing, truly. We borrow and re-create. We uncover and discover. All has been given, as the mystics say. We have only to open our eyes and hearts, to become one with that which is.
Henry Miller
It's very easy for me to be present in unusual circumstances like this camel ride. The great benifit of practicing T'ai Chi is it not only makes it easier but also enjoyable to be present in the everyday repetitive tasks of life.

My Heart sings this May with the wonder of our planet.Just back from Egypt where I spent time snorkeling and diving.The silence and beauty of the Red Sea's abundance filled me with joy. Now back home, ever present birdsong, softness of air, gorse scented mountainside, translucent beach leaves all take my breath away. Everywhere new life bursting forth full of hope and promise.

The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit; for like as herbs and trees bring forth fruit and flourish in May, in likewise every lusty heart that is in any manner a lover, springeth and flourisheth in lusty deeds. For it giveth unto all lovers courage, that lusty month of May.

Sir Thomas Malory (d. 1471)

"It all depends on how we look at things, and not on how things are in themselves. The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it."
Carl Jung
