Best Bets

While the lyric or cliche that ‘the best is yet to come’ may sound harmonic, nostalgic, or even prophetic, it is, in truth, misleading.

The best (a word I refrain from misusing) is now, in the present moment of your existence. And yes, it is the little things, those ordinary moments, that you recall as the treasures of your life.

It is not by accident that the master said: “It is better to live in fulfillment than in hope.”

Consider this: the ‘best’ may be happening this very instant—which is also the source of all great art.
