What is Important to Me?


As I am thinking of this question, a line from “Dr. Zhivago” comes to mind. Dr. Zhivago is a dreamer, a peaceful man who is being destroyed by the war around him.  He says to Lara at one point:  “I just want to live”.  This desire has joined the “important” group in my list.  It is in company with: Love well, Listen well, Tell the Truth, and Make a Difference Wherever I Can.  It doesn’t mean I want to cling to breathing for as long as I can (though I do).  It means I want to pay attention to now, to this moment.  I want to be all I can be, hear all I can hear, and say only what needs to be said.
