It is customary to ask people: what are you doing right now? What people are doing right now tends to tell you a lot about them, their ability to do something else, and their priorities. It has become as ubiquitous as the question: what do you do? What I am doing right now, or what I am working on right now, is something that is often shared for many reasons (or perhaps for no reason at all). Perhaps it's a way to quantify "busy" and letting others know that you are busy. Since this is a topic of importance to many, I have decided to address this matter in prose form.

I Am Now...

I am sleeping
I am breathing
I am blinking
I am drinking coffee
I am being a husband
I am eating
I am reading
I am reflecting
I am synthesizing
I am applying
I am writing
I am editing
I am teaching
I am earning
I am training
I am playing
I am learning
I am moving
I am chilling
I am living
I am traveling
I am praying
I am grateful
I am in love
There is only ever now
I am now
I am continuing

My priorities change from day to day based on how I feel; this is important to me as a free individual. For some priorities, my feelings remain constant.
