There is an admonishment which popular psychology will whack you with: “Live in the moment”. Irritating. Do state the obvious if and when I am in love with you. In which case you may utter rubbish, pass go, collect your fee and give me some housekeeping money.
If and when (more likely) I am NOT in love with you: DO NOT [state the obvious]. There is only so much gravity on the greasy pole of my esteem before you plummet.
Where/when do you live but in THE MOMENT? Ask anyone with a tooth ache. They will not remember the past. They LIVE the moment. The future a long distant memory.
However, this being the moment after the one before, and I do not wish to be a dentist despite the fact that they rake in outrageous fees when the unfortunate has no choice but to trust your steady drill: The Now being when (yesterday) you find yourself with an eye watering, nay blinding, backache to be restored to your former glory. I am no mathematician yet will hand it to the accountant of fate: One moment you are not quite so good (British understatement). The next you are back to Square One. You feel exactly as you did before ill befell you. I grant even the misers among you that you will appreciate that short lived moment, the trinity of relief, gratitude and happiness. Stress on ‘short lived’. Next moment you’ll take it all for granted. Again. I have no idea where I am going with this. Nowhere being my best guess. And that proves my point. We are back to Square One.
