We’re so distracted, we’re missing out own lives. The parent who records his kid’s dance recital or first steps or graduation is so busy trying to capture the moment–to create a thing that proves that they were there–they miss out on actually living and enjoying the moment. I’ve done this before with my camera. I have jockeyed for position, bumping elbows with other parents so I could get into the best spot to look through the viewfinder of my SLR to capture the moment of my daughter’s dance recital. Five-year-old Phoebe was so cute in her little sailor outfit, tapping away. And I got some great pictures. It’s just that while I remember getting the pictures, I do not recall the moment. So much of the time we don’t trust ourselves to experience our world without stuff. Things so often don’t enhance our lives, but are barriers to fully living our lives. — Dave Bruno
