“If you ain’t where you are you’re nowhere.”
It’s a line I recall from a Rolling Stone interview with Dylan. 30 years later it’s a warning I am still learning to heed.
I think many men, me included, can fail to be present. The switch to nowhere is so easily flicked.
The encouragement is to be present, not diluted by the past, nor the worry or fantasy of tomorrow.
As Saint Teresa of Calcutta says “…we only have today. Let us begin.”
