What is Present?

I’m big on living in the present moment.

But,

These questions have been on my mind lately.

Am I present when I’m thinking about my class tomorrow?

Or my gym session this evening

Or my friends birthday tomorrow

Am I present when I’m on a bus ride but I’ve zoned out reminiscing the time I hiked up a mountain at 4 am?

Or when it’s Friday and I’m planning in my head how the weekend will play out?

Is it possible to be present in absence?

What is present?
