in every moment

No one imagines that a symphony 
is supposed to improve in quality
 as it goes along or that the whole
 object of playing it is to reach
 the finale. The point of music
 is discovered in every moment
 of playing and listening to it. 
It is the same I feel with the 
greater part of our lives 
and if we are unduly absorbed
 in improving them we may forget
 altogether to live them.

~ Alan Watts
