“And during these travels he’s starting to train me in a most interesting way. We’d be sitting somewhere and I’d say,
“Did I ever tell you about the time that Tim and I . . .”
And he’d say, “Don’t think about the past. Just be here now.”
And I’d say, “How long do you think we’re going to be on this trip?”
And he’d say, “Don’t think about the future. Just be here now.”
