Random quote of the day:

“It turns out that being present is a courageous act. It involves discerning what we cannot change and changing what we can. We cannot change other people or the forces that act on us—we cannot change the relentless force of change. But we can change the quality of our presence here and now. We can turn away from the old thoughts, pull ourselves out of the deep groove of habit, and be here now.”

—Tracy Cochran, “Life Preserver,” tracycochran.org, April 30, 2014
