Feel the excitement of being here now! In The Art of the Moment, bestselling author Véronique Vienne explores ways to get the most from life, one day at a time. Her signature essays—short and sweet, yet insightful—are invitations to appreciate the uniqueness of each moment. Dismissing the notion that our notoriously short attention span is to be blamed for our distracted state of mind, she encourages readers to savor the fullness of life in brief, joyful installments. “Don’t wait for a second chance to get it right,” she says. “Each moment is both the last time and the first time because no two days are ever alike.”Each chapter is a reminder that time is not running out. You don’t have to rush to experience a sense of joy, wonder, and adventure. It’s yours for the taking, whenever you are ready for it. You can claim the “now” while watering the lawn, taking a seven-year-old to soccer practice, buying a new pair of shoes, or daydreaming about opening a small bookstore across the street from the bank.This book is a must-read for anyone who enjoyed Véronique Vienne’s now-classic The Art of Doing Nothing—and a perfect gift for anyone who believes that the ultimate art of living is to make each minute count. Beautifully illustrated with radiant photographs by Ann Rhoney, The Art of the Moment celebrates the very special joie de vivre that is your birthright.Prolong the Pleasure of Being AliveDon’t wait for a second chance to get it right.Fold your napkin carefully at the end of a great gourmet meal.Have serious conversations with seven-year-olds.Forget to mention that you were right in the first place.Say “Don’t ask” and “Go figure” rather than launch into tedious explanations.Reframe family pictures.Always have a kind word for people with old dogs.Look at the world as if you were a cat.Welcome unexpected interruptions: They are often the prologue to happy accidents.Think in the shower.Find a little more time to be with friends.Make the most of everything, one moment at a time.
