In The Moment

I saw a headline for an old humorous fake news item:

Woman ‘living in moment’ finds that unfortunately it is connected to other moments

It made me think a bit, because I feel the tension around this. There is a lot to be said for savoring the moment. But there's a lot to be said for looking ahead, as well.

The way of causality
Runs without end.
Embrace this reality,
Make it your friend.
We live in the now
But it changes so fast,
And grasping the how
Means you look at the past
And what's coming next.
To avoid being vexed.
