Creative Mornings with Virginia Lora

We tend to measure our lives by days or years, but what we seek in our dreams and cherish in memory are the moments that define us.

Think of moments, not as a page in a book, but that one highlighted sentence in a sea of letters. With a surgeon’s precision, you can point at defining moments that altered the trajectory of your life. The challenge of our times is not to chase after moments, but learning to embrace the one we have right now and do well with it.
