Must Be Present To Win

Sitting down at my desk to type this morning I noticed out my south-facing window that things outside had this unique, calming, pinkish tint to them.  I pondered that a moment before the dots connected, then looked to my left (east) to see a magnificent sunrise over the roof of the house next door.  As Homer Simpson would say – Doh!  It is so easy to miss that which surrounds me, either miss it completely, or miss its significance.  This brought me to the title of one of the things I read this morning, a phrase we have all heard countless times in relation to contests – “Must be present to win.”

It occurs to me that the phrase applies not just to contests, but to life also – “MUST BE PRESENT TO WIN!”  Note to self: Doh!  Don’t be a Homer.
