T.R.14 | The Present by Billy Collins
Listen to Tea Reads, Episode 14: The Present by Billy Collins
Also Available on iTunes
Today on Tea & Tattle, my Tea Reads choice is a poem by one of my favourite American poets, Billy Collins. In 'The Present,' Collins pokes fun at lifestyle gurus who preach on the importance of 'being present' and 'living in the moment.' When you start to feel as though you can't possibly live 'your best life' if it means practicing mindfulness everyday, then 'The Present' is the perfect antidote and will remind you that there are many different ways to find peace and joy in your life.
