I went to the woods to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life … so that when it come time to die, I will not discover I have not lived. Living is so dear.*
Henry David Thoreau

Where in your life or your work are you currently pursuing comfort, when what is called for is a little discomfort? … Choose uncomfortable enlargement over comfortable diminishment whenever you can.**

imagining, and before imagining there is
listening, and before listening there is
It is perhaps an uncomfortable thought in
our busy lives, but it is an ability we can all
Why not include one minute of stillness today?
