Today = possibilities

“What day is it?”
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.

— A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh

Winnie-the-Pooh’s got wisdom. (See Tao of PoohTe of Piglet)

We’ve made it to our last big stop  in our round-the-world adventure: Asilah, Morocco. Here we’ll stay for a month, at the edge of North Africa in a quiet artistic town with a fusion of Arab, French, and Spanish culture. It’s a good place to reflect.

What did I learn on this trip? (So many things.) What I’m most grateful for is…gratefulness. Because this trip was not perfect. I’m not perfect. But now I can appreciate the imperfections because they give life texture. And no matter where I am in the world, Today means Time. And Time means Opportunity to do-something-see-something-make-something.

That’s a pretty good deal.
