     I love this piece because it resonates where I see myself -- right in the middle of two paradigms, two worldviews -- neither of them wrong nor right. Neither is fully present nor absent. It is the past that informs me and the future that inspires me. How do i move gently into the future of my choice and honor the past of my tradition...

    What worked in a past still has a place in the future -- though not in the exact same way. What is being created and invented is happening on the ground of the past.

    In this middle space -- in this gap between the past and the future -- that present exists.

    in this time, in this present moment - in the now -- all of the future and all of the past come together and celebrate. And we get to live in that present now and for ever...

    it is really exciting time!
