Be here now

On a recent walk I came across a piece of street art. I stopped and took a mental picture of my kids in the enormous double stroller and Tinkerbell, our 65 pound black lab, proudly escorting us on a brilliant early spring day.

Erin's four-year-old son living in the moment.So, I thought, what if I asked members of our community to do the same thing? Have them stop and take a moment to document where they are throughout their Mondays. Luckily, I had a willing participant in Melanie Biehle who blogs at Inward Facing Girl.

"When Erin asked me to participate in her “a day in the life” experiment, the day she wanted me to document happened to be my third wedding anniversary. How could I say no?"
