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.
