the bothersome things of life

When
I started accepting
all of the bothersome things of life

and started dealing with them as if
they had a right to be
bothersome, 

things
changed as I realized
history creates the only moment there is… 

this moment, an always
changing speck of
nowness,

which is
about thirteen
point seven billion years of nowness

and there’s nothing we can change about it,
but we are able enjoy it
because being

in the
moment is
as real as we can get.

So why do we habitually
avoid this special
enjoyment?
