    You did find statements to make, even if Glaciers didn’t 🙂 Nice addition with the Heros quote

    Your insights invite my own questions, among them: Is living in the present an escape from the pain of the past and the uncertainty of the future? Or is living in the past an escape from either facing up to or totally enjoying what is happening right now? As a good reviewer, you elicit more pondering in your viewers.

    • Thank you!! I have often been accused of being smarter than what I read, but I hope that it’s more of a blessing than a curse for these videos!

      I don’t think there are good answers about all these questions but maybe one way to look at it is to think about what we mean by “living in the future” or “living in the past”? Is it just about thoughts and feelings–where we focus our mental and emotional energy–or is it about action? How long do you have to be in a particular state of mind before it counts as “living in the past?”
