What a weekend! Yesterday I was carrying sandbacks to conquer the flood. Today I’m eating ice cream, writing many poems und listening to radio. Before people complain why I’m not helping today: mostly professionals (fire brigade, soldiers) or equipped people shall help.
For hour’s I’ve been giggling about my own ideas. Great day! Probably I should participate more often in physical work.
We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.
