The Secret of a Full Life

The secret of a full life is to live and relate to others as if they might not be there tomorrow, as if you might not be there tomorrow. This feeling has become a rarity, and rarer every day now that we have reached a hastier and more superficial rhythm, now that we believe we are in touch with a greater amount of people. This is an illusion which might cheat us of being in touch deeply with the one breathing next to us.

- Anaïs Nin

Amen to that.

It also reminds me of this wonderful talk by Martin Prechtel, which is worth a listen -- the first part anyway.

Happy new year and blessings as always.
