When we see little children at play, they are immersed in the present moment, with seemingly no distractions. In fact, if we were to call their name and they appeared to ignore us, they would contend they did not hear us. When they are playing, they enter a different world, one that involves their body, mind and spirit. How often do we enter into the moments of our lives with such total abandon?
