when I think about it,
the Patriots games
really are a great metaphor for my life
about playing all 4 quarters

I have been learning to really live in the moment
in what I am doing
creation lives in the moment
not in the past
not in the future

creation in the now
changes both the future
and the past

each quarter is played completely in the present
so even if the first (and second
and even the third) quarter
is a wash, 
it is no longer in the present
I focus on where I am now
and on what I am creating now
the past no longer impacts me
and the future no longer worries me
