On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me…time.

The holidays bring such an onslaught of busy-ness that we often forget to spend time with the most important people in our lives, our families. In the hustle and bustle of the season, in the family politics, the office parties and making sure that we have everything accomplished it is all to easy to lose track of time and reach the end of the season and a new year without reconnecting with family and friends.

If you read this and realize you have made it through Thanksgiving and Christmas and have failed to give yourself time to enjoy the moment, take a moment to read the article below and find a plan to live the last three days of 2014 to the fullest!

Today I have the opportunity to share with you work by China Sojourns Photography that speaks the the fleeting nature of time and calls on us to live in this moment.

The only time we have is now, this nano-second of the present to live, where all we were andwill be is defined within this perfect moment to shine. As Heidegger called it: “the moment of vision”

Being Time in Kenya with Heidegger.

This is the eigth post in this series, let me recommend you first read ‘Twelve Debts of Christmas‘, ‘Family Holiday Ground Rules’, ‘1 Million Dollars’‘A Mental Breakdown’‘Equity’, ‘Freedom’ and ‘Entertainment’.

Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories
