I am sitting in the hospital waiting room, awaiting the arrival of my first grandchild, Aurelia Faith.  Interestingly enough, I am thinking about Eckhart Tolle again.  He talks about waiting and how we should seize those opportunities to practice being present.  I am actually using this wait time to write lesson plans and send them to a colleague.  I am also posting this blog entry to fulfill my daily agreement.  I am taking care of these now, so I can be present when the baby arrives.  I am also taking breaks from working to socialize with family.  So I am not really waiting.  I am not projecting myself into the future.  I am here at the hospital, taking care of things I need to do, and when Aurelia shows up I will be with her.
