No Time Like the Present

It's hard to relax in taxis when you're continually reminded that you're on the clock. As the taxi meter keeps running and the fare persistently goes up, and as some intersections in Bangkok have timers that count down the seconds at stop and go lights, it always feels like you need to get somewhere else quickly. But if you close your eyes for a few minutes and take some deep breaths, you might realize that the here and now is just as good, if not better, than the there and later.
