Breathing In

Breathing in, I calm body and mind.
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment
I know this is the only moment.
                               -Thich Nhat Hanh

I feel pretty emotional right now. Not in a bad way, just in an emotional way. Was watching some clips of an old program that I used to watch when I was younger and it brought back a flood of memories.

So I spent some time going through music that I used to listen too and now I am thinking that I need to revisit some of my roots. Maybe a weekend of nostalgia or something like that. I know I can not relive the memories but having some of the old music and videos around will at least make me think about them again.

I do find myself saying quite often that they don't make music like they used to or they don't make movies like they used to. Don't get me wrong there is a lot of good music out there now, even more so then the early 2000s. We are finally seeing some good bands come out instead of the same crappy ones that are overplayed.

So maybe a weekend of revisiting some of my favorites will help with the emotions. Maybe it will bring more, but those were happy days and even the ones that were not are over now and its time to live in the present. Of course sometimes its fun to bring back the past.


  1. It is certainly time to live in the present but I find myself longing for the past also. I am trying. I think changing one's expectations helps and also creating different ways of going about things. I guess I can't really explain what I mean but basically it is this: find a new happiness and quit longing for a past that will not return.
