oh my yes! Enjoy the journey each day even with the smallest actions or words or dance or song or story. Today I needed this reminder. it's been an intense work week preparing to present at MIT and I got caught up in the feeling of pressure. I live in Washington DC an intense city with many intense people who have a challenge relaxing. Well, I have learned that life is a musical... we can choose to enjoy a bit of song, dance, and music or we can get bogged down in a storyline. <3 Today I just booked a massage over lunch. Last night was enjoying sacred songs in the cathedral, and Wednesday was 600 people drumming in the cathedral. All for JOY and to live the journey. Valentine's Day I dressed in the pink heart onesie I sewed myself (it's far from perfect, but it's warm and fun) and I took my Free Hugs sign and walked down to the Columbia Heights metro stop and I just offered hugs. It turned the day around for me too. I've been doing Free Hugs since 2008 and V Day is now one of my fave days to share hugs and love. Yes, here's to enjoying the journey because it may be the only one we receive. Hugs from my heart to yours! Kristin

This is a beautiful passage. Humorous and yet pointing out deep truths at the same time. That we "play the piano" and not "work the piano" is such a wonderful point. Indeed, to be a good "player" in daily living is such a hard thing. Ironic but true! Points to the fact that perhaps what is needed is Unlearning of patterns. As we unlearn, play comes naturally.

Living is an art like music and dance. The art of living fully in the moment is the way of living.When our mind is occupied by the future we miss the existential unfolding beauty and joy of the present moment. A mind that is present enjoys the present of presence. The mind that is absent misses the present of presence. When we are fully engaged and absorbed in the present, we are in the flow, in the being zone.
I have been practicing mindfulness, the art of being fully present, attending to what is happening inside and outside without being hijacked by the past or the future. It has been a great blessing to me. This way of living is enriching my life personally and relationally.I have been able to appreciate the gifts coming from nature and people, feeling my heart with gratitude.
I am 91 years old and I am accepting my aging mindfully and gracefully. If I compare myself with the past, I am sure I will make myself impoverished and miserable. If I worry about the future, I am going to reject, diminish or even destroy the gifts of the present. I have realized the wisdom of living in the here and now. When I step out of the flow of the river, I miss the water of living and get thirsty.When I wake up from my illusion, I quickly get connected with the flow of life which is beyond space and time. I love Deepak Chopra's book "Ageless Body, Timeless Mind".
May we learn and practice the art of living life fully and share our gifts with others!

The best and happiest of living is like playing music in a way that is enjoying each note, not playing to get to the end of the piece. I suppose improvisational music or jamming is the ultimate playing music to enjoy the process of playing. I remember a book called Finite and Infinite Games, out of which I got that it's important to live life as an infinite game played for the joy of playing, not a finite game played to win. Life is an infinite game, at least for most creatures except for us screwed up humans. As an experiential psychotherapist, I have opportunities every day to experience time with others as playing music, responding to what is happening as it happens, being spontaneous, focusing on process and not outcome, operating out of my guts as well as and sometimes more than out of my head. What helps me avoid living a deferred life plan for future success and enjoy the music is my knowing that happiness is in the way of living, learning to keep process ahead of progress or product, and knowing that life is what happens in between plans. My happiest times are times I play life rather than work life.

Thank you for your post as it was what I needed to read at this time in my life. I have recently gotten involved in a new relationship with a delightfully enlightened man and find it hard to get used to the idea that he finds me so beautiful. I'm turning 60 in a few months and have been mourning the way that I used to look just 20 yrs ago, but aware that should I live to be in my 80s and beyond, I may be looking back at how I looked at 60 and finding myself beautiful 'then'. But with age comes wisdom (it's obvious in your post) and I'm thinking by then it won't matter how I look and will actually find how I look then as a different kind of beauty. Intellectually I realize that looks really don't matter, so whatever longing I have for my past looks is superficial and doesn't offer me anything positive. Your post has been a real eye-opener and for that I am grateful.

as an addition to the concept of "working the piano", a guitar instructor I had once told us never to say we were "practicing" the guitar; instead we were "playing" the guitar anytime we picked it up and plucked a string. A paradigm shift that allows me to be content with whatever I produce.

At 59 yrs. old, I am sometimes faced with the fact that I'm not a "professional". I not a "this" or a "that". When I was a kid and people would ask me "What do you want to be when you grow up?", my typical answers were, "A renaissance woman" or "A Jack-of-All-Trades" (We didn't have Jills-of-all-Trades back then!). I held to that commitment throughout life; playing many different melodies, dancing different movements. I see many people in my age group, and even much younger, are doing this thing that Alan writes of. They are running for the end of something, thinking THEN they will be contented, successful, happy, loved, etc. They imagine that, when they retire, they will have another 20 vital years to do everything they've put off! Sometimes they are aware that they've bought into something, a career, job, relationship, ideology, that has turned them into a slave. But they no longer have the resiliency to break out. They've allowed that creative capacity: to play instead of work, to dance instead of drive, to atrophy. So they find their "fixes" in order to tolerate the grief of being dead while still living. Life isn't a linear thing. Life is spherical. It expands in all directions. Our capacity to reinvent ourselves is the result of practicing with letting go of getting anywhere, letting the mind serve the heart, and approaching things with child-like curiosity.

Wow, a person after my own heart! I too am a Renaissance person with many interests, talents, and directions. I am so glad to hear I am not alone. I have felt alone in the past, and suffered from feeling like a "dilletante". Barbara Sher's book, Refuse to Choose, was really helpful. I so appreciate your point of view. Following my interest has been a way to enter deeply into life. Enjoy learning, exploring, discovering.
Thank you! I wish we could talk!

There was plenty to like about the way the Cardinals finished the 2017 season.
By capturing three of its final four games, the team scratched out a .500 record despite myriad injuries, cheap jerseys wholesale and the Week 17 upset of the Seahawks allowed coach Bruce Arians to retire as the winningest coach in franchise history.
It wasn’t great news, though, for the draft order, as the strong finish moved the team down to the No. 15 pick in the first round.
There is a great deal of debate about which of the top four quarterbacks – Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Josh Allen or Baker Mayfield – deserves to be taken first, Movie Football jersey but most analysts believe both Darnold and Rosen will be gobbled up before the Cardinals’ selection.
The price to move up is much higher in the first round, but it may be the only option if Darnold or Rosen piques the interest of the Cardinals’ brass. Rosen started for three seasons at UCLA, finishing with 9,340 yards passing, Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jersey 59 touchdowns and 26 interceptions In 30 games.
He has drawn positive reviews for his mechanics and football IQ, Denver Broncos Jersey possessing the tools needed to become a successful NFL quarterback. Rosen is an independent thinker, which some teams may appreciate but may make others pull back.
Lamar Jackson smiled, as he did through much of the media session that spent probably too much time Chicago Bears Jersey on whether the Louisville quarterback would work out at all as a wide receiver for NFL teams.“You know, I thought I did a good job at quarterback,” Jackson said good-naturedly.
A Heisman Trophy says Jackson did San Diego Chargers Jersey, as do his statistics: More than 3,500 yards each of the last two seasons, 57 total touchdown passes (against 19 interceptions), and 3,171 total rushing yards and 39 rushing touchdowns in that same span. Jackson, 6-foot-2 and 216 pounds, is a dangerous player to put behind center. The analysis will be whether it can carry over into the NFL.
That Jackson should forgo an opportunity to try quarterback is foolish, given his production. Minnesota Vikings Jersey During the Scouting combine, a report said there were teams that wanted to work him at receiver. That held no interest for Jackson.
“Whoever likes me at quarterback, that’s where I’m going,” Jackson said. “That’s strictly my position.” There will be multiple teams in a quarterback-hungry league that will want to give him that chance.
