Here and now, that’s all that matters!


This person surprised me as I saw him sitting within the depths of a giant precast.

I also noticed him being busy reading a book.

He appeared lost in the world of words.

What were my thoughts?

I felt the sturdy concrete walls providing a shield from the chaos of the outside world!

He seemed to find tranquillity in this particular location, where the only sound can be the rustle of pages. It appeared as though he had embarked on a literary journey with lots of imagination.

What astonished me was that he must have forgotten the heat outside, and it appeared as if he has transformed the concrete walls into a canvas on which his thoughts on the stories bloomed and his dreams took flight.

What I have learnt

In a world that often rushes by without a second thought, he chose to pause, to sit in the embrace of the giant precast, and let the words guide him on a transformative journey!

God offers many opportunities to us to pause for a moment and reflect on the present while making the best use of that momentary pause.


“The present moment is the only moment available to us, and it is the door to all moments.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
