Starting the car, you turn on the heat just enough to remove the fogged windows. On your way to work, you drive through the normal traffic until arriving. Then work mode kicks in and you go from one task to another. During your break, you pull out your phone to checkout the news. After work, you pick up some groceries for supper and hit the gym. On your way home, you turn on some tunes and arrive home. After dinner, you go prepare your the new day and off to bed for the new day.

From the day we were born within every moment of our lives, there has been a constant continual movement within our very body. The movement comes in as silent as ever, though upon noticing, our awareness brings into attention.

The seat was open and I decided to seat on the chair on the right end since it was closest to a friend’s home.
