Snowy says, be here now

This morning, I was contemplating the state of the world, and then as I sat down, Snowy jumped into my arms. He wiggled and wiggled until he fit just right against my body, and then, knowing that my arms would be there to support him, lay back against them with perfect trust and reliance, his little paw against my chest. And stared at me, blinking softly, challenging me to be here, right now, rubbing his soft belly, feeling a little sigh whistle through his nostrils, watching his ears wiggle as I sang to him.

And he taught me again, that this – right here – is enough.
