Dawn - Monday morning
Day breaking - a view from a window in central Swindon early this morning. Another bright, cold, cloudless February day. Monday and sadly work, but time for a lunch-time walk in the sunlight and it was still day-light at the end of the working day. At 5.30pm this evening the sun had just set and the almost full moon had risen and was shining frostily and bright. By the time I reached home the sky in the west had turned the same spectacular colour that appeared at first light . We take the sky with us wherever we go and wherever we live.
Look to this day for it is life;
the very life of life.....
For yesterday is but a memory,
And tomorrow is only a vision
but today well lived makes every yesterday
a memory of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
(extract from a Sanskrit Hymn)
