Reticent Mental Property

FEED My MIND: Adventure. Learn. Live. Write.



Live in the moment; try to be present.

The meaning of life – the reason we are put here on earth, the secret to happiness – is to live in the moment; to be fully engaged in that.single.moment…

And to learn from those precious moments we are given. -Ret

And in our time together I am shattering the philosophy while at the same time adhering fully to it.

I’m enjoying my day to day here in the present, in the doing what I do, while having the conversations I have, while immersed in the big projects from sunrise to sunset; every little observation enhanced because I filter each through the music I strive to pull into my life.

And at the VERY same time, I’m only half-here, half-present in the meaningful moments.  I’m only half-enraptured with the eruption of spring, only half-laughing at the antics of friends and family, only half-entranced with the starlight and moonbeams and the riffs I hear in the wind. Your smile is carried through its chorus, moves my hair across my cheek, my collarbone, tangling it into the eyelashes of these wizened and wondering hazel eyes.

Only half of me is here, present.

And half of me, is gone, a little lost,  living in the day to day of feeding your body, feeling your hunger for my limbs, letting my heart beat match yours while fingers play the length of forearms and across shoulders, tracing slowly the muscle and bone of your back.

Ours is a simple love in a complex structure of loving. And I am so grateful for the learning.

There you are! There you are.You have found me, all of me. Where have I been wandering all of my life?

    I love the way this resonates “Ours is a simple love in a complex structure of loving. And I am so grateful for the learning.”

      all loving, at its root is simple yet everyone complicates it in our own way, yes?

        Agreed it is basically simple. “We” may complicate it, and others through their foggy views may also cause complications. It’s sometimes difficult to ignore society’s standard roles for us. And that often complicates the simplicity and purety

          Societal standards, personal baggage and then, so many kinds of love….the only static is the learning opportunity, if we choose to embrace it!

    Sometimes (often times) I have to remind myself to be in the present. I am always looking forward, borrowing trouble, trying to plan. Sometimes, most times…we should just be~ Sigh.

      yes, living in the present….both the challenge and the beauty of yoga, too…be right there with the breath, but when we are one with the breath, we are both free and entranced…

    This is true, I’m trying to believe in living in the moment..but it is easier said than done. It’s easy to find yourself drifting off and thinking of the future, or being caught in a memorable moment from the past.
