Live firsthand

Don’t be content to merely gaze at images on a screen. Feel the rich, real and varied texture of life as you actively participate in it.

Look other people in the eye, not just through a camera. Engage in long and meaningful conversations, not just in abbreviated updates.

Live firsthand. Experience the fullness of what life feels like.

You are not just a concept or an identity. You are a beautiful and unique living embodiment of the miracle of existence.

Touch and hear and taste and see what’s really there. Live all the magnificent details of the experience.

Get fully involved in the living of life in all its dimensions. Live firsthand, and experience it all yourself.

— Ralph Marston
