Living in the present

Seagull 1Concentrate all your thoughts on the task at hand. The sun’s rays do not burn until brought into focus. —

Alexander Graham Bell

Seagull2Rejoice in the things that are present; all else is beyond thee.

—French essayist, Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592)

Seagull 3The living moment is everything. —D.H. Lawrence
Seagull4Seize from every moment its unique novelty, and do not prepare your joys. —

French author, André Gide (1869-1951) from Nourritures Terrestres

Seagull5Why not just live in the moment, especially if it has a good beat?

—American actress and director, Goldie Hawn (b. 1945)

Seagull6Life is all memory, except for the one present moment that goes by you so quickly you hardly catch it going.

—American writer and playwright, Tennessee Williams (1911-1983)

Seagull7Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense. —Ralph Waldo Emerson

  1. Hi Enivea, I have enjoyed this series of photographs over the past few days. I have been admiring the way you have recorded the seagull and its interaction with the surging waves. This single bird is dwarfed by the immensity of the sea, yet it is completely at home.
