Thich Nhat Hanh is a Vietnamese Zen Buddhist monk, author, poet and peace activist.
Just typing the combination of those words makes me feel calmer.
I know that somewhere, under all the rushing and running around and multi-tasking is a peaceful inner core, and I want to find it.
But first I have to create the conditions to get to it.
What is the hurry?
With the help of Thich Nhat Hanh's quote below, I will decrease the speed with which I am living my life. I will do one thing. Slowly.
So that I may reach a peaceful place.

"Breathing in, I calm my body.
Breathing out, I smile.
Dwelling in the present moment I know
this is a wonderful moment."
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
