Tony this reply was very helpful to me, thanks. I also have no watch anymore!! And "segments" as in morn, noon, nite, are my preceptions of "time" as well. I like especially the idea you conveyed, at least to me, that here and now is here and now..this IS the only reality deep down. Somebody else posted something earlier about..the Past is perspective, the future is potential and the preseent is a gift--something like that. I like that.
Also I like knowing I am not going to try to "go back" TO some other time, some other "me" from efore. I have to know I am a "ME" right now. I am going to go forward not back-- and do the best with what I have now. It will help my "future" if I know it is never too late, in the NOW, to loosen up, be more flexible, less afraid...just freakin LIVE.
