one of my favorite poets, khayyam was a persian polymath from the 12th century. his philosophies, including a quasi-hedonistic inclination to embrace the present for all of its infinite worth, were centuries ahead of their time.

Embracing the present for all its infinite worth is something that I try to keep in mind because it’s close to my heart. Some days I have that inclination more than others, but reminding myself to do so tends to help me feel better about things in general.
It’s my view that people are probably the most miserable creatures on this fair planet because they train themselves not to do said embracing. You look at any other animal and it’s clear that it is living in the present. I think that there is something to be learnt from that.
