It’s hard not to notice, hardly anyone is ever just in the moment enjoying the experience first hand. It’s all through the lenses and filters of our devices, it’s fulfilling the need we somehow developed to humble brag about the wonderful things we are doing in our lives, it’s almost like we have resigned ourselves to secondhand experiences instead of fully immersing ourselves. I want to recapture the moments of pure joy, happiness, fulfillment, and community. I want to put down my devices and make eye contact with other people who have that same look of fire and passion that I feel. If we aren’t living in the moment and experiencing everything life has to offer in that moment are we truly living? /\/\/\
“And a great occasion is somehow spoiled for us unless photographed, And to read about it the next day in the newspaper Is oddly more fun for us than the original event. This is a disaster...” -Alan Watts /\/\/\ .
