The Autumn In Their Eyes






















You are not there. Somewhere in the future, suffering for something that hasn't happened yet. You are not there, in a place where all your worries manifest.

You are not there. Somewhere in the past, reliving your old mistakes and regrets. You are not there, in a place where memories resurrect.

You are here. Right here.

My mind has wanderlust. And sometimes it goes to places I don't need to visit.
So thank you for this tether.

Oh! I'm sorry, but I noticed this photo is the same as "The Evidence Against And For". Intentional?

My favorite entry by FAR. Love the concept of conscious thought/present moment living. :-)
Are you and Eckhart Tolle zen brothers, by chance? This screams "Power of Now."
