Now or never

Now or never. Is this an advertising hoarding for Eckhart Tolle’s ‘The Power of Now’? Well, it may be, for all I know. But it’s more obviously a giant headbanging brick wall of a general invitation to everyone, everywhere, to ask ourselves, as Mary Oliver put it:

“What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

Some say “it’s never too soon,” while others say “it’s never too late,” and maybe there’s some truth in each. But here’s a brick wall. And it asks us at the very least to consider NOW … or maybe never. Writing this just before bedtime, it’s time to put my thinking nightcap on. How am I living my NOW?

And should I be?
