Relatively Quiet, Significantly Present

The Present may disappoint you in its ordinariness. Whether or not we are aware that we are in the Present, the Present can’t be said to care. It may indeed be one of the most important moments of your life, one you will always refer back to… You may glorify, embellish it, weave it into your Story in the Later Telling of it. But in the moment that you live it, that it happens to you, it can be so relatively quiet. Not silent. Indifferent. Preternaturally Calm. Detached.
