All dust and flashing hooves


Certainly, being in the moment would seem impossible in our culture’s time-fissioning present, our iPhoned, Facebooked, Googled, Twittered restlessness, our desperate fear of missing the latest morsel of information, our attention never more than a nanosecond from seduction — our discontinuous, du jour present, a Smithsonian so densely packed with experiential exhibits that no lingering look, no settled examination, seems permitted. No sooner do we settle into a moment than another gallops by, all dust and flashing hooves.

~ Jerry DeNuccio, from “A Moment.” Just as you’re ”in” the moment, another moment comes. What to do?.

  8. Even horses stop to eat and nourish themselves. Its a good place to start for galloping humans.
    They also sleep standing up, but I wouldn’t recommend that 😉

  9. But sometimes it’s pixie dust, not dust dust. How does one get enough pixie (magic) dust?
