My parents are visiting this weekend to spend time with an amazing granddaughter, so I will be brief.
Here is Today* is a wonderful look at how spectacularly small this moment in time is compared to all that has already been. Of course, tiny things can be cute. Please don't think I'm disparaging the present moment. It's just that Stoicism asks us contemplate the vastness of time; what has been and what will be. We can remind ourselves that the present situation won't last forever. If that situation is uncomfortable, we can find solace in the inevitability of change. If it's going really well, well...be prepared for change and resolve not to take the present for granted.
With Stoic Week coming up, I wanted to give you a simple tool to orient your mind in a stoic manner. I myself bookmarked Here is Today a while back. It works well on mobile, so it allows me to take a brief sojourn through time anywhere I'm standing. I recommend the same to you.
*A few of you may notice that I've posted this site once before. Hey, I really like it.
