Eat the Strawberries

"Let not our longing slay the appetite of our living." - Jim Elliot

It's entirely possible to go through life waiting for the "next best thing." I say, "I can't wait to go home," and I ignore the present moment, where life is given.

"I have been anxious... to stand upon the meeting of two eternities, the past and the present, which is precisely the present moment, to toe that line." - Henry David Thoreau

But I have saved the best philosopher for last: a young boy named Calvin.

His thoughts are here.

  1. Speaking of strawberries, ours are going gangbusters!

    Sure hope there are some left when you get home!

    Oh, wait, that goes against your metaphor here ..
