Welcome to my blog, “Present Moments.” I know, it sounds like “Precious Moments.” It’s that too! Present moments are precious and I hope you will enjoy my reflections on living a conscious, full and vibrant life. Expand into the present moment and BE here now. Rest in the awareness of a loving and divine presence. Take respite in the mystery of the moment and bring your full attention with you. Being present is an active state of existence. As we journey together on these mindful meanderings, we are sure to wake even more to new ways of seeing and knowing. The worlds (plural) await!
