Present and Real

We shower,
but think of work.

We work,
but mentally go over the errands we need to run.

We run errands,
but our mind is on making dinner.

We make dinner,
but worry about our children.

We spend time with our children,
but dread the bills we have to pay.

The past is gone. The future is not here.
Can we bring back the past? Can we predict the future?

How will we be able to experience what is present and real,
if our mental focus is always distracted and on something that is gone or not here?
