“I act as though nothing else exists outside of the place I currently find myself. My past is not happening to me right now, my future isn’t happening to me right now, I am laying on a couch with my wife in this room with children asleep in the next one. Nothing else exists but this present moment and these present people. Nothing else “functionally” exists. I put down my phone and breathe the air I share with others I am presently sharing my life with.”
