Be here now.
But what if "here now" is 1 paper draft plus 1 presentation on a paper draft that really isn't done or researched well all in the next 23 1/2 hours and what if "here now" is you're slipping away from me which is sad and scary stinging and numbing and what if "here now" is there isn't even the comfort of summer then boom-done-back to school and what if "here now" is there is literally not enough time in a day for all of the words and people and shut eye and appreciation I need to write and see and have and give, and what if "here now" is really "what next?" in disguise and if "what next?" is really "here now" then I'm not sure how to be. Now.
All I know is that I'm here.
