So, "Be Here Now" is not just a New Age philosophy, is it!
I've been reading Bakewell's biography of Michel de Montaigne, who was a self-examiner if ever there was one, and whose most common written statement might well have been "but I'm not sure."
A few bits, among the many, that struck me:
"Montaigne himself did not brood in his tower like a Gormenghast earl: he liked to be out walking."
"Easy conversation in trivial situations was valuable; it opened the path to deeper relationships, and to the more pleasant evenings where one could joke and laugh at ease."
"The only hope of emerging from the fog of misinterpretation is to remain alert to its existence: that is, to become wise at one's own expense."

Meanwhile, I'm going outside for a walk under the big sky.
