Present Moment

Whatever the specifics of a man’s purpose, he must always refresh the transcendental element of his life through regular meditation and retreat. A man should never get lost in the details of his life and forget that, ultimately and in truth, life amounts to nothing other than what is the deepest truth of this present moment. Tasks don’t get a man anywhere more conscious or free than he is capable of being in this moment.  — David Deida

Working from Lyon, France

I recently returned from beautiful Lyon, France, where I worked for a month. It was great to be in France again and I look forward to returning in May. I stayed in a renovated apartment in a 16th century building (in historic Vieux Lyon, a UNESCO world heritage site). It had a unique staircase, which was built without a core.
