What does it mean to be present? - By Rana Diorio
Sometimes a book falls into your lap that is perfect for the very moment that you are in. This happens to be one of those books. What does it mean to be present is a beautiful book for any age. It speaks beautifully to a problem so many of us face, busyness. Today as I was trying to write this, (while dealing with dinner, my children arguing, our oldest's grad meeting (Yes our oldest graduates this year!!) and my husband's business) I giggled thinking that this was the book I was going to be writing about. How do we remain present when life is moving at a break-neck pace? I can't wait to read this book to my kids (and my students) and have all the conversations that I know will arise. This book is a great one for Inference, Questioning and Transform. It also might just become my go to gift book, to both kids and adults alike!!
