Living in the Moment?

Sometimes, when I'm doing something routine, something I do every day, or almost every day, suddenly lifes seems distilled down to just that activity ­ as though life is just that one thing, interspersed with a few inconsequential other things.

Brushing my teeth, it seems only moments ago I was brushing my teeth the night before, and the night before. It's as though all of life is just tooth brushing, skipping rapidly from evening to evening with little in between.
