Racing or Enjoying the Sights?

Which one are you today?
(No fair telling me which one I am!)

A friend sent me a prayer/poem
with these beautiful lines (Thanks Linda!):

     There is no substitute for the present moment.
              To enter it slow down
                     Until it envelops you.

     We are always choosing: either
              in fear, keep busy
                     or in wonder, attend.

     There is no way but slowing down
              to see and live truly,
                     to be here and not elsewhere.

I'm slowing moment by moment,
choosing moment by moment,
seeking to see and live truly.

It's not impossible for me this way.
Moment by moment.
How about you?
