I have been absent-minded very often for a while. I have been distracted, my mind somewhere else in the past or the uncertain future. (And my memory got scattered.) A few friends, both human being and other being, and a few events reminded me of that, and taught me the important thing --- attending to the here and now. Simple. Just simple. But it really takes me a lot of effort. Except when I'm taking photos or teaching to my students, I am million miles away without noticing it. However I have been reminded that I would lose something very precious if I were to remain this way. I hope to transform inside, to be in this moment.
