IN, But Not FOR

" Generally, 
by the time you are real, 
most of your hair 
has been loved off, 
and your eyes drop out 
and you get loose 
in the joints 
and very shabby. 

But these things 
don’t matter at all, 
because once you are
 real 
you can’t be ugly, 
except to people 
who don’t understand."

love not
 the wise, 
drunkards
 love not
 the sober."

one which tolerates 
eccentricity 
to the point of 
doubtful sanity."

I want to really 
live 
IN the moment; 
but not live 
just FOR 
the moment.

How About You,
Friend?

Living in the moment can be hard for people sometimes.

Lovely pictures. And a fine distinction between living FOR the moment and living IN the moment. All of our days are a collection of moments to be savored.

Love moments, lots of little ones are cool, work gets in the way of my life. Better to have nice, busy work than the alternatives. DrumMajor

Aloha Cloudia, I'm with you on that thought. Marvelous quotes throughout too. I plan on doing just that, again today....!

The clouds are magnificent. My favorite quote is the one you chose in the Velvetten Rabbit. I like the idea of living in not for the moment. That makes a lot of difference. Thanks and happy Weekend.

Great pictures. I love the fins. I also love The Velveteen Rabbit and your other quotes. Thanks for a wonderful morning!

My favorite way of saying this is that I want to feel completely comfortable in my own skin." So far it hasn't really happened.

I once had a snorkel and flippers on a trip to Hawaii.

Actually twice: once to Maui and Kauai (two islands in one week...was too much travel and not enough relaxing, but I loved seeing Kauai. Second time was a week in Maui. Such lovely fish and corals!

Love that Margery Williams quote. And yes, pink puppy (who is now grey) and dirty uncle teddy are obviously very real. Realler than I am some days...

Beautiful shots!

It's been too long since I've read the Velveteen Rabbit.

We all live in the moment but we don't all know it.

I'm living in the moment right now... But unfortunately, I'm bored.

Love the Velveteen Rabbit quote!
