Three Realms

28 Jul

Elusive future.  Idealized past.  Present reality.  We choose to live in one of these three realms.  We vacillate between realms at times.  Thinking too much about what is not yet, wishing too much for what was; missing the gift of what is.   This moment, excruciatingly real and at times just as mundane, is what we have.  And in that tension our hearts reside in what seems a discontinuous movement from hope, to nostalgia, and back to this present moment.
