You know how you hear your own voice, telling you why didn't you take this walk more often, why did you take this picture? You are constantly interrupting yourself, while you try to shush the noise inside your head.
We live in the present, and the reflective present, alert to waves that might bury us, watching ourselves being clumsy as we step lively to avoid being soaked by errant waves, and reminding ourselves that we have responsibilities, deadlines, expectations.
We are spectators in our own lives.
The very ability that allows us to interrupt ourselves, the very thing we call self-control, can also be a major detractor.
Today, this minute, just BE.
Don't spoil these sensations.
