”My advice to you is not to inquire ‘why?’ or ‘whither?’ but just enjoy your ice cream while it’s on your plate.” —Thornton Wilder, The Skin of Our Teeth Certainly there are times when the “why” and the “whither” have to be dealt with, but for the most part, we do that — take care of what needs to be done — quite well. But just enjoying our ice cream . . . maybe not so much. Too often it seems we are also doing something else — or several other things — while we are eating our ice cream. Wilder’s advice brings us into the present moment, into now. The next time you have ice cream (soon, I hope) — “just enjoy it,” and that’s all.
